9780099520412: American Caesars: Lives of the US Presidents - from Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush

Eminent biographer Nigel Hamilton offers a group biography of the twelve caesars of our time: the American Presidents from F.D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush.

Suetonius' The Twelve Caesars became a classic of classical times: a virtuoso literary portrait gallery, remarkable not only for its frank dissections of Rome's great emperors, but also because the twelve men were the embodiment -- both good and bad -- of Rome's greatest century.

In view of the country's rise to superpower status, the twentieth century has been called 'the American Century', and  award-winning biographer Nigel Hamilton now gives us the lives of the twelve men who presided over America's imperial fortunes -- the good, the bad and the truly awful.

Not since the days of the Roman emperors has there been such a succession of rulers holding the fate of the world in their hands. How did these American Caesars reach the White House? What were the challenges they faced when they got there and how did they meet them? And who were these men in their private lives?

Nigel Hamilton's short, candid, critical portraits of the presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush are compulsively readable. Packed with unforgettable characters as well as stories, lessons and revelations, American Caesars is essential reading for our times: a vivid portrait of the United States over the past six decades to rival Suetonius' account of classical Rome.

Twelve major biographies of influential presidents: Franklin D. Roosevelt; Harry S. Truman; Dwight D. Eisenhower; John F. Kennedy; Lyndon B. Johnson; Richard Nixon; Gerald Ford; Jimmy Carter; Ronald Reagan; George H.W. Bush; Bill Clinton; George W. Bush.

About the Author :

NIGEL HAMILTON is one of Britain's most distinguished biographers. He began his career with The Brothers Mann, a life of two of Germany's greatest 20th century authors. He then won the Whitbread Prize and Templer Medal for Monty, his definitive, three-volume official life of Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, following which his JFK: Reckless Youth proved an international bestseller and which was filmed as an ABC mini-series, starring Patrick Dempsey. He became the first Professor of Biography in Britain, at De Montfort University, and currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
From the Hardcover edition.

"Rogues and (a few) heroes -- they are all here in this impressive gallop through eighty years of US history."
— Robert Chesshyre, Literary Review

"He has written a provocative, stimulating, infuriating and readable history."
— Hugh MacDonald, The Herald
