Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7-12-- Nearly one-fourth of this country's presidents were ``accidental,'' that is, they were vice presidents who were called upon to complete deceased leaders' terms of office. Lindop uses these nine cases to denote the place of the vice president in the American political system. For those with any interest in our country's history, this book will illuminate some other important issues. Even those with limited background may be drawn to the subject by Lindop's appealing writing style and information about the times. His ability to relate past history to present reality is clear right from the introduction. He presents each man's career in a way that demonstrates how the office was adapted to fit the realities of the times. The accounts are scrupulously balanced and fair, with no fictionalizing and minor simplifying. The author takes special care to present both the strengths and the weaknesses, successes and failures, of these men. While he uses a standard format--a chronological account of the life and career followed by some analysis of the important issues the individual faced--he adds well-placed anecdotes to bring the person to life. Well written and objective, this is the book to choose on the political development of the vice presidency. --Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library System, Edmonds, WA
