How have the American presidents measured up in terms of social, economic, and leadership issues? What do historians and political scientists say about the best and worst presidents—since 1900—and why?
Join Michael D’Innocenzo, professor of history at Hofstra University, for a new discussion series that will examine how we evaluate and rate the American Presidents. Brief background readings will be available at the Reference Desk in either library building prior to each session.
