Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
Meet James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States. First elected in 1816 at the beginning of what was called the "Era of Good Feelings," Monroe was a popular president who ran for his second term unopposed. The six chapters of this volume trace Monroe's life from his childhood in Virginia through his military and political careers to his death on July 4, 1831. One chapter is devoted to a discussion of the Monroe Doctrine, a principle that was first outlined in Monroe's annual message to Congress and stated that European powers were not to colonize nor interfere with the affairs of the independent states of the Americas. Frequent sidebars provide additional information about relevant events, people and issues. From the "Presidents and Their Times" series, this book is illustrated with historical photographs, sketches and paintings. Includes a timeline, a brief glossary, a list of books and websites for further information, a bibliography, and an index. This biography is an excellent resource for middle and high school social studies students. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
