Abstract:

The views of the presidents of the late 19th century are presented on a number of issues, usually drawing from inaugural addresses or speeches to Congress, and contrasted with the dissent of politicians and others who disagreed with the president. Each president is afforded an individual section that typically focuses on four to five issues. For example we have Rutherford Hayes on industrial strikes, James Garfield on race in the South, Chester Arthur on Mormon polygamy, Benjamin Harrison on the annexation of Hawaii, and William McKinley on the Open Door policy. The issue of the gold standard arises on a number of occasions. Annotation ♭2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
