School, public, and academic libraries should purchase this volume."--American Reference Books Annual" "" ... the current work succinctly brings together a wide range of material in an engaging way ... the entries provide a human dimension, capturing the politics and drama of the subjects' lives." --Booklist" "John Adams, the first vice president, called the vice presidency "the most insignificant office that was the invention of man." Nonetheless, the majority of our vice presidents have been people of extraordinarily high aspiration, ability, and achievement. For some, the vice presidency was the deflating end of a political career; for others, the office was a stepping-stone to the presidency." "Vice Presidents, Fourth Edition is an informative compendium that details the lives and careers of U.S. vice presidents. Completely updated through the administration of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden, this edition contains biographies of each vice president by prominent experts and scholars, portraits of each vice president, a detailed chronology of their lives, and suggested further reading about each vice president."--Jacket." ;
