Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fresh look at the only president to serve nonconsecutive terms.

Though often overlooked, Grover Cleveland was a significant figure in American presidential history. Having run for President three times and gaining the popular vote majority each time — despite losing the electoral college in 1892 — Cleveland was unique in the line of nineteenth-century Chief Executives. In this book, presidential historian Henry F. Graff revives Cleveland's fame, explaining how he fought to restore stature to the office in the wake of several weak administrations. Within these pages are the elements of a rags-to-riches story as well as an account of the political world that created American leaders before the advent of modern media.

Synopsis:

Presidential historian Graff revives Grover Cleveland's fame in this fresh look at the only president to serve nonconsecutive terms.
