What was it that allowed some to rise to greatness while others failed? What elusive mix of character traits, circumstance, and determination combine to mold the shape of a presidential administration?
This course explores the tenures of the men who held our nation's highest office during the 20th-century. The lectures look at each president and examine his strengths and weaknesses, as well as the times in which he served. Through this analysis, listeners will develop a better understanding not only of this supreme office and how it has taken shape, but also how it has shaped America and, indeed, the modern world.

"History made clear and easy!"
I am a third year degree student studying US Civilisation.
This is an excellent book. The way it is presented in 'lectures' makes the whole experience much more enjoyable. I felt like I had spent 8 hours at a University conference and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is lively, full of anecdocts that make remembering facts a lot easier and it is delivered with passion. Wish my lecturers were half as good!
Brilliant! Buy it you won't be disappointed.
