The American Presidents book. But David C. Whitney's writing was enough to win me over. The undertones of american patriotism to admitting the scandals and the faults and flaws with some presidencies were written flawlessly. The written execution of the short biographies were simple, informative and educative.

The American Presidency is at once the strongest and the weakest point in our democratic system and the most .

The American Presidency is at once the strongest and the weakest point in our democratic system and the most powerful office in the world. It has been held by forty-two men, each of whom, whether dull or flamboyant, virtuous or corrupt, humble or imperial, capable or inept, has interpreted his constitutional power and responded to the imperatives of history in his own way. With scholarly accuracy and appealing informality, David C. Whitney and Robin Vaugh Whitney have drawn vivid profiles of the chief executives.

America’s once overlooked second president gets the full treatment from the best-selling author of multiple books of history. Adams, McCullough points out, was hard-working, moral, enormously intelligent, wise about politics and prescient about the American Revolution. Yet this (fairly massive) 1995 biography by David Herbert Donald, a Harvard historian, pulls together much of the scholarship into a definitive single volume that views Lincoln’s failings and fumbling as much as his achievements.

Whitney, David Charles was born on March 8, 1921 in Salina, Kansas, United States. Son of William R. and Jerusha F. (McCartney) Whitney. Bachelor of Arts Kansas, 1942.

The USA has survived tho the presidents were not all what we consider ideal. That historical fact gives me hope for our present predicament. A good read, especially for future and present teachers of our children.

This book and earlier editions are being read by various family members and are generating enthusiastic reviews. Of particular interest are the observations that politicians frequently tried to secure candidates for the presidency that could be "handled" and /or controlled.
Human nature does not change. History helps us all to maintain a little perspective on the present political situation.

Clear, compact and concise reference book of all the American Presidents. The main section of this book devotes a few pages on each President (from the 1st to the 42nd) with historical facts, dates and places. A small section at the back, lists such things as key facts about each President and Vice-President, the First Ladies and all Presidential Elections; also for anyone interested in the making of the Presidency or intend visiting presidential historic sites. A must on any book shelf for those interested in American Presidential history.

This is one of those volumes you might want to add to your collection in that is is quite informative and quite concise. It covers the American Presidents from Washington through Clinton. Each section is devoted to one president. Each section leads with a selection of information such as birthdays, former employment or profession, their political careers, date of death and years served as President. Each then is given a short biography, well written, I might add, and summation of their administration. There are photographs throughout the book of each of these men. The first ladies are addressed and little interesting facts thrown in here and there. Each of these short chapters is not, of course, ment to be the beginning and end of all presidential biographies, they only present brief facts. These facts are given is such a way though, that you actually learn something. I like biographies. By having a brief sketch like this book offers, I am more able to make up my mind which full lenght biographies might interest me and which I might not like as well. As an example, I could care less about reading a biography of James Buchanan, but do like to know a bit about him. This book offers as much as I really wish to know. David Whitney had given us a very nice bit of helpful work here. Recommend this one highly.
