Presidential Courage by Michael Beschloss

  • Presidential Courage:  Brave Leaders and How They Changed America, 1789-1989
  • by

  • 448 pages
  • Publisher: Simon & Schuster; Reprint edition (February 5, 2008)

Presidential Courage is a brilliantly readable and inspiring saga about crucial times in American history when a courageous President dramatically changed our future. Like Beschloss's previous book, The Conquerors, it was a New York Times bestseller for months. 

With surprising new sources and a dazzling command of history and human character, Beschloss brings to life those flawed, complex men -- and their wives, families, friends and foes. Never have we had a more intimate, behind-the-scenes view of Presidents coping with the supreme dilemmas of their lives. For Americans who must choose Presidents and assess them once they are elected, Presidential Courage sets a lasting standard by showing us the best in Presidential leadership. (Amazon)

My Thoughts:  We hear everyday of one political party bashes the other and it was very interesting to see that this type of conflict has gone on since the beginning of our nation.   Political difference and discussions are what make our country unique.
