Summary
Throughout American history, Presidents and Presidential candidates have faced assassination threats and attempts on their lives. Historian Ronald L. Feinman discusses sixteen Presidents, as well as three important candidates, and how they were directly threatened with assassination -- six being killed, three wounded, and ten unhurt. Additionally, he reveals information about some failed attempts, which, had they been successful, could have resulted in fifteen different men who would have become President of the United States. Which ones would have been able to fill the responsibilities? Which ones would have been disastrous in the Oval Office? The problem of Presidential security, safety, and protection remains a serious problem today. The Secret Service and FBI employ all kinds of technological methods to protect our Chief Executive and his family, as well as other top officials in the line of succession. Feinman brings to light how these agencies have grown, both technologically and physically, to counter these attacks. He also sheds light on how these threats to our Presidency have devastated, changed, and grown our United States into what it is today
