There is an unelected office in the United States that receives just as much scrutiny, if not more, than many elected offices—first lady. Hummer (political science, Wilson Coll., PA) draws from her experience as a political writer for The Hill and the Journal of Political Science Education, among other publications, to delve deep into the lives of prominent wives of the presidents, from Lou Henry Hoover to Michelle Obama. The author details their public personas, their actions during presidential campaigns, and the social causes they championed. By dividing the book into three sections, Hummer is able to provide an informative analysis of these varied aspects without slowing the pace of the narrative. Covering much of the 20th century, the work touches on notable first ladies such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Jacqueline Kennedy. By profiling each figure separately, the author successfully provides a solid perspective on who these women are and how they felt about the position they held. VERDICT Readers interested in presidential history will enjoy this look at the underrated but important role these women played in the rise of this country's most powerful leaders.—Rebecca Kluberdanz, New York P.L.
