While America’s presidents hold great sway and command much attention during their terms of office, the measure of their historical impact often comes from what they write. The papers produced by each commander-in-chief helps determine how history will remember him, since the writings provide first-hand accounts of the presidency. Mirroring the personality of the president, these writings vary form the pedestrian to the prolific. Little of note remains from the tenure of Zachary Taylor, while the products of the Nixon era continue to spark national debate. This book gives a listing of the major pieces of literature produced by each president, as well as an overview of researching presidential records. In providing an introductory bibliography, the book becomes an excellent starting point for anyone researching the presidency in general or a president in particular.
