Summary
"American Political Leaders 1789-2005 is a one-volume quick fact finder from CQ Press that contains concise information on every president, vice president, cabinet member, Supreme Court justice, member of Congress, and state governor in American history - over 14,000 elected and appointed political figures. This resource includes all the basic biographical facts on these U.S. leaders: birth and death dates, state of residence, political affiliation (including any switch between parties), periods of public service (for all major offices), and familial relationships to other American political figures." "Each of this book's six chapters opens with a general introduction that provides historical background on the office being detailed as well as analytical and interesting facts about the officeholders. Numerous boxes and tables cover such topics as presidential disability and line of succession, first ladies, presidential religious affiliations, presidential considerations in choosing Supreme Court justices, cabinet holdovers, women and minorities in Congress, congressional occupations, and term limits for governors." "The volume features an appendix that includes charts on the make-up of every cabinet in U.S. history (arranged chronologically by president); the beginning and adjournment dates for every session of Congress since 1789; the top leaders of the House and Senate since 1899; congressional committee chairs since 1947; and listings of all black, Hispanic, and women members who have served in Congress through 2005. Also included are helpful indexes: a subject index covering the introductory material and a comprehensive name index for the volume."--Jacket
