Editorial Reviews

Review

"Troy argues that the rise of the First Couple is not simply a function of the women's movement, but reflects a mixture of factors, including the weakening of parties, the rise of personality politics, the increasing power of the Presidency and the Federal Government and perhaps, most important of all, the 'rise of the mass media and the new political culture it spawned.'"--New York Times Book Review

"A must read for anyone interested in the presidential marriage. Recommended for a broad audience."--Presidential Studies Quarterly

"An absorbing book full of surprising and fascinating anecdotes."--Kirkus Reviews

"Deeply engrossing."--Publishers Weekly

"Thought provoking [and] convincing."--Library Journal

"A must read for anyone interested in serious discussion of the power and influence of presidential spouses. It removes these women from the roles associated with tea and china and places them in the larger context of White House turf battles and American ambivalence toward women and power. While I disagree with his conclusions, I have not read a more provocative, thoroughly researched, or readable account of these women. I recommend it without reservation."--Allida Black, author of Casting Her Own Shadow: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Shaping of Postwar Liberalism

"Hillary Clinton should read Troy's book. Anybody who wants to be First Lady should read it. Anyone married to a powerful person, or thinking about marrying a powerful person, should read it; in fact, everyone should. It's full of nuggets and insights about marriage, power, and the presidency. I loved it."--Lesley Stahl, CBS News
