Following a thoughtful, introductory overview of the presidency, this volume is arranged chronologically and offers a selective list of primarily book-length studies on each of the forty presidents and the presidency in general. The critical annotations furnish insights into each book's contents and approach to the subject. While other guides to the presidents and the presidency exist, this one offers annotations far more extensive than are to be found elsewhere. In addition, the information covers the general historical problems related to any particular presidency, and will assist the student in selecting topics for further school-related research papers.

There is no shortage of bibliographies of American presidents, but this one is unique... It would be a worthwhile addition to undergraduate collections serving a large population of U.S. history, government, or political science majors.
