Very president-centric, but great in that area. Crammed with facts and finely recreated presidential election landscapes. All kinds of stuff that was important at the time and determined outcomes, but has since been mostly forgotten. Very informative and leaves you smarter about how things really went down. Theme is that economic status is only a secondary factor in American elections. Mostly events and culture are the shaping factors.
