From the front flap of this 792 page book: "This is the first book of its kind to give narrative detail not only in the immediate families of the Presidents but on their ancestries and descendants. [This book] covers every occupant of the White House, from Washington to Clinton. Except in the case of Clinton, whose administration is too young to permit an overview of his political achievements (although the latest research is covered), each President is discussed in two essays. One examines his career as a statesman, the other his family background. Letters, diaries and private information have been used as well as published sources such as biographies. In addition there are tables giving details of presidential ancestors and descendants, together with pictures not just of every President but of his wife or wives and other members of his family where they played a significant role in his career. One of the most noticeable aspects of this book is how often a President or his family has links with a peer's or baronet's family in the British Isles: Washington and the Lords Fairfax, the Adamses and the Downing baronets, James K. Polk and the family of Lord Newton, or Teddy Roosevelt and the brewing dynasty of the Lords Burton."
