Presidents, The - The Transformation of the American Presidency from Theodore Roosevelt to Barack Obama

In this magisterial examination of the Presidency over the course of the 20th Century, the author explores the history of the world`s greatest elective office and the role each incumbent has played in changing the scope of its powers. Using individual presidential portraits of each of the presidents of the past century Graubard asks, and answers, a wide variety of crucial questions about each President.
What intellectual, social and political assets did they bring to the White House, and how quickly did they deplete or mortgage that capital? How well did they cope with crises, foreign and domestic? How much attention did they pay to their election pledges after they were elected? How did they use the media, old and new? Above all, how did they conduct themselves in office and what legacy did they leave to their successors? Graubard provides original analysis in each case, and reaches many surprising conclusions.

A szerzőről:
Stephen R. Graubard has been Assistant Professor of History at Harvard and Professor of History at Brown University. From 1961 to 1999 he was the editor of Daedalus, the journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. As a young scholar, he was invited by Eleanor Roosevelt to attend the last inauguration of FDR on the lawn of the White House in 1945. He has known many of those closest to the succeeding Presidents since then, experience that he has drawn on in the writing of this book.
