This exciting volume brings together the work of leading presidential interpreters and scholars who met for extended discussions at the Miller Center. It contains discussions, reproduced essentially as they occurred in November 1981. The contributors are well-known commentators on the presidency, each uniquely qualified to appraise the particular president or presidents they were invited to discuss. The ten presidents discussed are Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. Co-published with the Miller Center of Public Affairs.
