The landmark reference to this important topic, the six-volume Encyclopedia of the U.S. Presidency devotes one comprehensive chapter to each of the 44 U.S. presidents and his administration. Each presidential chapter-featuring a biography, an article on the presidential campaign, and an article on the president's administration-provides students and readers with all the information they need to understand the president and his era. Also included are articles on every major event, law, incident, and action that took place during the president's term in office. In addition, every chapter contains biographical essays on the first lady and vice president, as well as a social history essay on a key development of the era. Useful reference features in each chapter include a presidential fact box; an election map with complete vote tallies by state; tables listing the president's cabinet, Supreme Court appointments, and congressional leaders; chronologies of the president's life and administration; a generous assortment of original documents; and an extensive bibliography.

In addition, one volume of the encyclopedia features thematic articles on vital topics of the presidency. These include the origins of the presidency, evolution of presidential power, presidential election process, presidency and political parties, presidency and Congress, presidency and the judiciary, presidency and the military, presidency and the press, presidency and popular culture, ""imperial presidency,"" and presidential powers compared with executive authority abroad.
