From Abigail "Nabby" Adams to Chelsea Clinton, George
Washington Adams to John F. Kennedy, Jr., the children of
America's presidents have both suffered and triumphed under
the watchful eyes of their powerful fathers and the glare of
the ever-changing public. Whether they perished under the
pressure like Andrew Johnson, upheld controversial views
like Amy Carter, or carried their father's torch right back
to the White House like George W. Bush, all presidential
children grew up having to share their fathers with the
whole of their fellow countrymen -- and, in too many
instances, spent the rest of their lives in a desperate
search for their own identities.
In this illuminating bestseller, Washington insider Doug
Wead offers an authoritative analysis of our nation's
presidential offspring. Featuring lively anecdotes,
photographs, short biographies, and never-before-published
personal accounts, All the Presidents' Children is an
important socio-cultural work, a groundbreaking study of
American family dynamics, and an entertaining foray into the
homes, hearts, and history of our forefathers.
