Book Overview: Grover Cleveland: The American Presidents Series: The 22nd and 24th President, 1885-1889; 1893-1897

A fresh look at the only president to serve nonconsecutive terms: Grover Cleveland.

Though often overlooked, Grover Cleveland was a significant figure in American presidential history. Having run for President three times and gaining the popular vote majority each time -- despite losing the electoral college in 1892 -- Cleveland was unique in the line of nineteenth-century Chief Executives.

In this book, presidential historian Henry F. Graff revives Cleveland's fame, explaining how he fought to restore stature to the office in the wake of several weak administrations. Within these pages are the elements of a rags-to-riches story as well as an account of the political world that created American leaders before the advent of modern media.

"In this brief, excellent volume written for Arthur Schlesinger's American Presidents series, Columbia professor emeritus Graff ( The Tuesday Cabinet) picks up the often neglected Grover Cleveland, dusts him off and reminds us how substantial he was." - Publishers Weekly

Henry F. Graff was a distinguished historian and acclaimed professor emeritus of history at Columbia University, renowned for his incisive analysis of American presidency. Born in 1921, Graff completed his Ph.D. in American History from Columbia University where he pioneered the first seminar devoted to studying the US presidency. His expertise garnered national attention, leading to consultation roles for multiple U.S. presidents. Authoring numerous books, including critically acclaimed "The Presidents: A Reference History," Graff capably articulated complex themes into comprehensive narratives, reflecting an illustrious academic career that spanned over five decades. His writing embodied scholarly precision while maintaining a lively conversational style, bridging the gap between historical academia and the broader public reach. Graff's influence extends beyond academia, through his significant contribution to the Presidential Oral History Program at the Miller Center of Public Affairs, University of Virginia. An incisive thinker, a skilled educator, and prolific writer, Graff remains a towering figure in the field of American historical scholarship.
