...a storehouse of information about all aspects of the presidents' lives. – Oklahoma City Oklahoman. Pledging to deliver captivating, timely reading and great breadth of information, The Handy Presidents Answer Book addresses more than 800 questions relating to the presidency. These range from why presidents refused to act against states’ rights to extraordinary powers taken by presidents during times of war, as well as actions in times of boom and bust, isolationism and expansion. Foreign policy questions address Washington’s controversial neutrality, the Monroe Doctrine (and later expansions), the Cuban Missile Crisis, the War in Iraq, and much more. Arranged in fourteen topical chapters, the questions begin with background on the Executive branch and the official duties of the president. Handy Presidents also answer intriguing questions on personal characteristics, leadership styles, relationships with the people and the press, and, of course, the first ladies. Then the gloves and top hats come off to address presidential candidates, campaigns, and elections—including lively accounts of deals, slogans, and controversies, from smoke-filled rooms to election night surprises … and recounts.
