This is the only book in the University of Kansas Press series on the presidencies that I did not finish. The first 100 pages or so are more of a litany of statistics of the cabinet departments. Perhaps sometime I will pick it up again and read it backwards, starting at the last chapter. Recommended only for history majors or for those who have a special interest in J. Q. Adams.
