"A superb tour of presidential travel and its deeper meanings. Ellis finds a fresh way to see presidents, power, and the American people. The fascinating historical detail adds up to a sober reflection of lost republican ideals. Wise, lively, elegant, fun, and vexing."--James A. Morone, author of Hellfire Nation: The Politics of Sin in American History
"A fascinating and eminently readable work that provides a distinctive perspective on American social and political development."--Fred I. Greenstein, author of The Presidential Difference
"An indispensable guide to peripatetic presidents and the impact of their journeys on the nation's highest office."--Lewis L. Gould, author of The Modern American Presidency
"With customary insight, thoroughness, and literary grace, Ellis reveals how the presidency has become `regal' as seen through the prism of presidential travel."--Michael Nelson, editor of The American Presidency: Origins and Development
"Perceptive and provocative, this lively study of presidential `road trips' provides a novel perspective on the two-century evolution of the office."--Bruce Miroff, author of The Liberals' Moment: The McGovern Insurgency and the Identity Crisis of the Democratic Party
