This two-volume reference work presents essays on the biography and politics of each US president, chronologically from George Washington to George W. Bush. Each entry begins with information on the administration number and dates, birth and death dates and locations, political party, vice presidents, and cabinet members by department.

Entries also provide annotated bibliographies and sidebars on vice presidents and first ladies. The editors (of Florida Atlantic U. and the U. of Florida) also include an overview essay that provides a chronological narrative of the office of the presidency.
