Recarving Rushmore

Ranking the Presidents on Peace, Prosperity, and Liberty

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Evaluating presidents on the merits of whether their policies promoted peace, prosperity, and liberty, this ranking system takes a distinctly new approach. Historians and scholars have long tended to give higher rankings to presidents who served during wartime, were well spoken, or exceeded in expanding the power of the executive office. However, this new examination cuts through these longstanding biases and political rhetoric to offer a new nonpartisan system of ranking that is based purely on how well each president's policies adhered with the founders' original intention of limiting federal power in all its aspects. As a result, the book provides an alternative history of the United States as seen through the founders' likely vision of subsequent presidential actions. These presidential rankings will surprise most and enlighten even acknowledged experts on the presidency.

Best history book I have read

This book is good because you find out about all those presidents from the 1800s that you did not know much about. I learned a lot about American history as well. Like about all those events you heard about but did not know much about (War of 1812, various wars with Indians, Spanish American War). The typical liberal bias is refreshingly gone. You should learn a lot here. You may also discover that the US is not as pure as you may think. If interested in US history, this is a must read.
