✏The Accidental President Book Summary : The remarkable story of President Harry Truman's first four months in office when this unlikely, small-town, Washington outsider had to take on Germany, Japan, Stalin and the atomic bomb, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance - one of the most extraordinary challenges in American presidential history. Heroes are often defined as ordinary characters who find themselves facing extraordinary circumstances and, through courage and a dash of luck, cement their place in history. Chosen as President Roosevelt's fourth term Vice President for his admired work ethic, good judgement and lack of enemies, Harry S. Truman was the prototypical ordinary man from small-town America. That is, until he was thrust in over his head following the sudden death of Roosevelt. With the world still caught up in the inferno of the Second World War, Truman found himself playing the roles of both judge and jury during the founding of the UN, the Potsdam Conference, the Manhattan Project, the German surrender, the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the decision to drop the Bomb and bring the war to the end. Tightly focused, meticulously researched and drawing on documentation not available to previous biographers, The Accidental President escorts readers into the situation room with Truman during this tumultuous, history-making four months - when the stakes were high and the challenges even higher . . .

✏The Accidental President Book Summary : When an explosion rips through the home of Gulf War veteran Clarence Davenport, Secret Service Agent John Wallace and White House aide Molly Pemberton are certain that Davenport, the assassin who killed President Butler, had killed himself. President Silver, the former Education Secretary who became President when Davenport killed all other legal successors to the Presidency, informs the nation that the crime of the century has been solved and that the perpetrator is dead, only to have to admit, days later, that Davenport had escaped. National outrage at Davenport's escape escalates, fueled by Senator Jeb Davies' political ambition and his hatred of Ben Silver. Davenport, the world's most sought after fugitive, with no other place to go, is recruited by Saudi expatriates opposed to the Royal Family and ends up in an Al Qaeda training camp where he devises another plan to kill President Silver and attack the United States. Silver tries to stave off the rising tide of impeachment and at the same time combat the increasing risk of a terrorist attack that will destroy the Presidency and fundamentally change the Unites States unless he can avoid impeachment and intercept the threat.

✏The Accidental President of Brazil Book Summary : Fernando Henrique Cardoso received a phone call in the middle of the night asking him to be the new Finance Minister of Brazil. As he put the phone down and stared into the darkness of his hotel room, he feared he'd been handed a political death sentence. The year was 1993, and he would be responsible for an economy that had had seven different currencies in the previous eight years to cope with inflation that had run at 3000 percent a year. Brazil had a habit of chewing up finance ministers with the ferocity of an Amazon piranha. This was just one of the turns in a largely unscripted and sometimes unwanted political career. In exile during the harshest period of the junta that ruled Brazil for twenty years, Cardoso started his political life with a tentative run for the Federal Senate in 1978. Within fifteen years, and despite himself, this former sociologist was running the country. And what a country! Brazil, it is often said, is on the edge of modernity, striding with one foot in mid-air towards the future, the other still rooted deep in a traditional past. It is a land of sophisticated music and brutal gold-digging, of the next global superpower and the last old-time coffee plantations. It is gloriously ungovernable, irrepressibly attractive, and home to the family, friends and extraordinary life of Fernando Henrique Cardoso. This is his story and his love song to his country.

✏John Tyler the Accidental President Book Summary : The first vice president to become president on the death of the incumbent, John Tyler (1790-1862) was derided by critics as "His Accidency." In this biography of the tenth president, Edward P. Crapol challenges depictions of Tyler as a die-hard advocate of states' rights, limited government, and a strict interpretation of the Constitution. Instead, he argues, Tyler manipulated the Constitution to increase the executive power of the presidency. Crapol also highlights Tyler's faith in America's national destiny and his belief that boundless territorial expansion would preserve the Union as a slaveholding republic. When Tyler sided with the Confederacy in 1861, he was branded as America's "traitor" president for having betrayed the republic he once led.

✏The Accidental President Book Summary : Follow newswoman Maggie Pierce "into the depths of an enlarging quagmire. As the Republican National Convention approaches, one of Ohio Senator George Cranston's interns contacts Maggie about his discovery that the senator had rigged the bidding process for the upcoming high-speed rail project in California. Two weeks later the young man's body is found, another unsolved homicide on the city's list, and the players in Rosati's newest novel converge. As the diverse collection of Presidential candidates struggle for the nomination, Maine's votes remain uncommitted until their senator places himself on the ballot as a write-in candidate. Within a matter of days, delegates and the country-at-large meet and come to know David Kenneth (Deke) McKinney. Amid the crosscurrents of political infighting, this fast-moving story travels the streets of Washington, D.C. With a rare double vision, the author parallels past and present. Deke's history advances through his high school years in Auburn, Maine, his service in the U.S. Special Forces, to the inaugural platform in Washington, D.C. In 'now' time, Senator George Cranston feeds his rapacious appetite for power." A surprising conclusion amid the confluence of multiple forces that carry an "accidental" and trustworthy president into the Oval Office will keep readers engaged. --

✏Intellectuals and the American Presidency Book Summary : Intellectuals and the American Presidency examines the complex relationships between America's presidents and intellectuals since 1960. From Arthur Schlesinger's work in John Kennedy's campaign and administration to Daniel Patrick Moynihan's role as the Democrat in the Nixon White House, through Sidney Blumenthal's efforts to secure intellectual support for a scandal-plagued Bill Clinton, presidents have had to address the question of intellectual support. How they did this has helped to shape their presidencies and their historical reputations. Using both popular sources and some never-before-used archived material, Intellectuals and the American Presidency looks at the advisers who served as liaisons to the academic community, the presidents' views of those intellectuals, and how they fit in with the presidents' plans. In this bipartisan study, political insider Tevi Troy analyzes how American presidents have used intellectuals to shape their images and advance their agendas.
