The US president is the most powerful figure on earth, wielding an unprecedented global influence. This brilliant, candid account of the men who have commanded the Oval Office during the twentieth century reveals their personalities, achievements, crises, secrets and legacies. From "saviour" Franklin D.Roosevelt to JFK and the myth of Camelot, from "Tricky Dick" Nixon to neo-imperialists Reagan and George W.Bush, Stephen Graubard takes us to the heart of the hidden - and increasingly monarchical - nexus of power at the White House. Examining how war, espionage, deception, money and the media have transformed the office in modern times, he asks: has the presidency now become too powerful? Format: 12,5 sm x 19,5 sm.

...I do quite enjoy wandering around charity shops to see if there are any interesting books. Recently I was in a shop where you could purchase 3 books for £1, so I decided to pick up this one along with some other Sheila O?Flanagan books. I had read some of these books years ago and enjoyed them, but had largely forgotten about what they were about.

...La Rochelle in the Charente-Maritime area of France is a port frequented by cruise ships who dock at the industrial harbour which is quite a distance from the town.

Many years ago we had camped nearby but had never found time to visit so I was looking forward to having a look around.
