BISAC: POL025000

President of the United States of America is an official title sought by many and won by only a few individuals. The series entitled First Men, America’s Presidents, contains a book length biography of each President of the United States of America. Every book contains information on the President’s early education, professional career, military or political service prior to the presidency, interpretative discussion of both domestic and foreign policies during each presidency, and the conclusion of their political lives in public service. The two major themes of this series are the character traits marking success in the presidency, and the changes in the office of presidents throughout America’s history. This new book is in celebration of John F. Kennedy, our 35th president, and his major contribution to our country before his untimely, tragic death. (Imprint: Nova)
