From the moment George Washington assumed the presidency, the world watched, and in the aftermath of the Cold War, the U.S. president has been considered the most powerful leader on Earth. This innovative new series looks at the American presidents from a global perspective. Written at the 6th- through 8th-grade reading level, entries feature biographical information and a narrative explanation of the major world events with which American presidents have grappled. Now more than ever, the nations of the world are part of one community. Modern transportation, communication, and economic interdependence mean that every country is connected to the others. George W. Bush's War on Terrorism is a global effort, and America's dealings with the Middle East are felt throughout the world. The president of the United States has never simply been a national figure. Lincoln's decision to suppress the South in 1861 not only affected the economic markets of Europe, but also ultimately changed the way the world thought of about slavery and democracy. Would Hitler have won without FDR leading America into war? What if Truman hadn't dropped the bomb? From the moment George Washington assumed the presidency, the world watched, and in the aftermath of the Cold War, the U.S. president has been considered the most powerful leader on Earth. This innovative new set looks at the American presidents from a global perspective. Arranged chronologically from Washington to G. W. Bush, entries feature biographical information and a narrative explanation of major world events that American presidents have grappled with.
