C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb and co-CEO Susan Swain talk about their new book, “The Presidents: Noted Historians Rank America’s Best – and Worst – Chief Executives,” which provides a complete ranking of the presidents based on the network’s much-cited Historian Surveys of Presidential Leadership.
D.C.-based historians Kenneth Ackerman and David O. Stewart, who are featured in chapters on James Garfield and Andrew Johnson, will also participate in the conversation.
Over a period of decades, C-SPAN has surveyed leading historians on the best and worst of America’s presidents across a variety of categories including their ability to persuade the public, their leadership skills, moral authority and more.
Based on interviews conducted over the years with a variety of presidential biographers, this book provides not just a complete ranking of our presidents, but stories and analyses that capture the character of the men who held the office.
