Great Presidents by Allan J. Lichtman

Great Presidents

by Allan J. Lichtman

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
24 Hrs.


A widely published authority on American politics who is an award-winning teacher gives you a new look at 12 leaders of vision and practical wisdom.

These 12 steered us through pivotal times: Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Polk, Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, and Reagan.

With revealing anecdotes, "inside" stories, and close analyses of key decisions, Professor Lichtman shows you how the character and conduct of each of these men altered the office of the presidency—and changed American and global politics.

Among his considerations:

  • Why was Washington uniquely important?
  • Why did Lincoln think he couldn’t be re-elected?
  • How much of Kennedy’s promise had been fulfilled before his life was cut short?
