Product Description


"Buchanan's management of the secession crisis is at the heart of the book, and its bounty of informed views on his role during this seminal moment in American history is refreshingly diverse. The collection might very well come to be regarded as the most comprehensive and useful reconsideration of the Buchanan presidency."--"Civil War Monitor" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

A topic that does not receive much discussion. Interesting reading for Pennsylvanians about our only contribution to the Presidential pool.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, only obuma is worse than this maligned clown ! April 11 2014
By Gerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A series of essays on all things James Buchanan
each is different, erudite, brilliant at times and pithy
good photos and the times of struggle in the late 1850s highlight the book
buchanan? like obuma, in way over his head and too dogmatic to change
