Synopsis

Synopsis

Entertaining, up-to-the minute, and easy-to-use, The Look-It-Up Book of Presidents features a short, lively biography of every president from George Washington through the winner of the 2012 presidential election, plus a chapter on Election 2000—the "year of the chad." It includes concise descriptions of the major events, issues, and achievements of each administration, and is fully illustrated in black and white with engravings, cartoons, and photographs.  In-print and updated after every presidential election since 1968, it's an easy-to-use, affordable alternative to hardcover home reference books like National Geographic's Our Country's Presidents at $24.95. An invaluable resource that the whole family will turn to again and again, The Look-It-Up Book of Presidents is American history in a nutshell.

“Throughout more than 15 years of revisions, The Look-It-Up Book of Presidents, first published in 1968, has remained a reliable resource for reference and browsing, offering comprehensive, informative profiles of American presidents. . . . Ann Bausum’s Our Country’s Presidents (National Geographic, 2001) and James Barber’s Presidents (DK, 2000) offer glossier formats with full-color illustrations, but they don’t diminish the appeal and usefulness of this book.”—School Library Journal
