About the Author:

Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. (October 15, 1917-February 28, 2007) was a renowned American historian, social critic, and the prolific author of numerous books including, most recently, "War and the American Presidency," He twice won both the Pulitzer Prize, for "The Age of Jackson" and "A Thousand Days," and the National Book Award, also for "A Thousand Days" as well as "Robert Kennedy and his Times," In 1998 he was awarded the prestigious National Humanities Medal.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—An update to the 2007 edition, this collection of all 56 inaugural addresses contains each speech prefaced by a brief introductory essay that provides contextual information on the preceding election, contemporary political climate, and speech themes. The introductions also provide readers with information such as crowd responses, weather conditions, and interesting trivia such as which was the longest (William H. Harrison—8,466 words) and the shortest (Washington's second address—135 words). Whether one is looking for Jefferson's "We are all Republicans, We are all Federalists" or Kennedy's "Ask not what your country can do for you," this book allows one to experience the shifting contours of the American political climate. Because inaugural addresses are easily available online, one questions the necessity of purchasing such a volume. However, the high quality of the introductions and the convenience of having a print copy on hand make it a welcome addition for most libraries.—Brian Odom, Pelham Public Library, AL
