The New York Times on the Presidency
Meena Bose, Hofstra University

An exciting and affordable new volume offering a unique perspective on the Oval Office 

The first title in a new imprint that pairs expert political analysis with rich historical news coverage, The New York Times on the Presidency is a fascinating new reference book that uses nearly 150 years of  New York Times’ reporting to explore the dynamic nature of the presidency in the American political system. 

Presidential scholar Meena Bose has selectively chosen a variety of news articles, editorials, and data from The Times for which she has written context-providing narrative that discusses the key issues, leadership challenges, and turning points in each president’s administration, from Franklin Pierce (1853-1857) through George W. Bush (2001-2008). The New York Times on the Presidency provides readers with insight into the stories of 29 presidents spanning three centuries, as well as the effect The New York Times’ position may have had on the issues of their day. 

Selected documents from the New York Times include: 

  • News stories
  • Editorials and letters to the editor
  • Op ed essays
  • Pictures
  • Public opinion polling data
  • Obituaries 

The New York Times on the Presidency launches the new TimesReference series from CQ Press. The series is designed to support high school and college curricula and course work, focusing on topics in American government, U.S. history, elections, Congress, the presidency, the U.S. Supreme Court, journalism and public opinion. Just in time for the 2008 election, The New York Times on the Presidency will find a home in high school, public, and undergraduate libraries.

- Choice

"The rich variety of material offers a good look at the actions of the presidents, their impact, and public reactions.... a valuable resource." - School Library Journal

"Pulling from [The Times'] pages its words about presidents is indeed a work worth doing and tool worth having. Publication of this title is overseen by CQ Press, the grandmaster of such tools and so all the more reason to take note." - American Reference Books Annual
