The Presidential Image A History from Theodore Roosevelt to Donald Trump Press Reviews

Presidents have spent a lot of time and energy crafting their public image, so it's surprising that historians have not given this important subject the same kind of attention. This interesting, imaginative, and original volume goes a long way in filling this historiographical void. * Andrew Preston, Cambridge University * The Presidential Image is a much-needed addition to our understanding of the presidency. Fresh insights into each of these leaders show how powerful image can be, and oftentimes the image is carefully constructed and curated by the president himself. * Luke A. Nichter, Professor of History, Texas A&M University *
