Hardcover(Library Edition)



The United States has held a presidential election every four years since George Washington was unanimously elected to office in 1788 and inaugurated in 1789. This single volume reference book discusses the presidential candidates and the major issues surrounding each election. Each entry also includes sections on the campaign and the election, explaining everything from the tactics used by each side to the results of the election -- both in the Electoral College and the popular vote. Organized chronologically, with special features that include sidebars, presidential portraits, campaign memorabilia, election maps and charts, biographies of the First Ladies, a bibliography, and an index, The Encyclopedia of U.S. Presidential Elections is a terrific resource for young readers.
