The Presidents Fact Book is a compendium of all things presidential and a sweeping survey of American history through the biography of every president from George Washington to Donald Trump.
Organized chronologically by president, each entry covers the major accomplishments and events of the presidential term; cabinet members, election results, groundbreaking legislation, and Supreme Court appointments; personality and personal habits; career before the presidency; a behind-the-scenes look at the wives, families, friends, and foes; and much more, including hobbies, odd behaviors, and outlandish penchants. Major primary documents from each administration — from the Bill of Rights to Barack Obama’s speech on race in America — provide a glimpse into the crucial moments of America’s storied past in the words of those who led the nation.
Perfect for students, history buffs, and political junkies, The President’s Fact Book is at once an expansive collage of our nation’s 45 individual presidents and a comprehensive view of American history.
