In several senses, our homes are our histories. Implicitly recognizing that fact, Hugh Howard's Houses of the Presidents doesn't function simply as an architecture or interior design pictorial, but also as a narrative of the future presidents, presidents, and former presidents who occupied these abodes. As the publishers note, this large format hardcover presents a fascinating alternative history of the American presidency. Roger Straus III's adroit photography synchronizes perfectly with the captions and other writings by historian and architecture specialist Hugh Howard.
