The President of the United States of America is the most powerful person in the world, the leader of the world's foremost economic and military power with global interests and an unparalleled global reach. So when American Presidents speak people listen. Since George Washington became the first President of the United States in 1789, 42 men have occupied that powerful position, some more memorably than others. Illustrated with approximately 180 photographs from the vast archives of the Press Association, this book is a celebration of the political rhetoric, wisdom, humour and gaffes that have been spoken and written by those 43 Presidents of the United States.
