A detailed look at the lives of the first ten U.S. presidents, this work focuses as much on their social lives as it does on actual presidential decisions. The volume provides photographs of paintings and lithographs, along with full source for the 258 quotations by either the president, associates, or historians. A final section of miscellanea contains interesting tidbits about presidents, such as the skinny dipping habits of John Quincy Adams. Nowlan is the author of two dozen books and a variety of articles.
