qIf you are interested in the theater, in presidents, and in American culture, you'll be fascinated by this masterly treatment of plays about American presidents. Altschuler covers drama, musicals, satires, and every other genre, and unearths little known gems as well as analyzing Broadway and off-Broadway hits. After reading Altschuler, you'll be well equipped to understand how plays about presidents illuminate our politics, and if you are interested in specific presidents, especially Lincoln, FDR, LBJ, and Nixon, you'll gain new insights from the plays that Altschuler has collected. This is a pathbreaking work of immense value to anyone who reads about or writes about the presidency.q - Richard M.
