Summary
"Detailing the disgraces of more than 40 presidents, from sexual skirmishes to CIA cover-ups, Dark history of the American presidents covers every dirty deed committed behind the White House fence, from financial profiteering and insider trading to illicit bugging of the opposition. Dark history of the American presidents also tells the story of a nation's advancement: from the post-Revolutionary days of anti-monarchy and slavery, through the bitter strife of internal wars, Reconstruction, boom, and Depression, to the United States' emergence on the world stage as a superpower. Using reproductions of portraits, period caricature, and cartoons, as well as ... photojournalism, Dark history of the American presidents reveals the true face behind what has become the most powerful job in the world"--Jacket
