Summary
An all-inclusive examination of the vice presidency over the course of American history. Witcover chronicles each of the forty-seven vice presidents during their tenures, and explores how the roles and responsibilities were first subject to the whims of the presidents under whom they served, but came to be expanded to a de facto assistant presidency
