Following a thoughtful, introductory overview of the presidency, this volume is arranged chronologically and offers a selective list of primarily book-length studies on each of the forty presidents and the presidency in general. The critical annotations furnish insights into each book's contents and approach to the subject. While other guides to the presidents and the presidency exist, this one offers annotations far more extensive than are to be found elsewhere. In addition, the information covers the general historical problems related to any particular presidency, and will assist the student in selecting topics for further school-related research papers.

Norman S. Cohen received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in History and is currently Professor of History at Occidental College. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles and reviews and Civil Strife in America (Dryden).From Library Journal:
This bibliography about the presidents includes biographies, autobiographies, and studies concerning their significance and impact. Annotations average around 100 words and are lucidly written. Omissions and inclusions are inevitably arguable in a volume of such brevity; Lincoln, for example, has just 46 entries. Most titles cited are from the second half of the 20th century. The index would be more serviceable if it included the titles of the books themselves rather than merely the names of the authors. This is a straightforward, accessible, selective bibliography of presidential biography and history useful for public and university libraries. More comprehensive coverage of individual presidents is available in Meckler's Bibliographies of the Presidents of the United States , scheduled for completion in 1992 at $2750 for the 50-volume set. Individual volumes on Grover Cleveland, William H. Taft, and William McKinley have already appeared (1989) and cost $55 each.
