Synopsis

James K. Polk is considered one of the greatest American presidents. Yet until this prodigious biography by noted historian Walter R. Borneman, no complete account of Polk’s life had ever been written. At last, through Borneman’s lucid narrative, Polk emerges as the man who won a war, doubled America’s size, and empowered the executive branch—in just a single term—against a contentious political backdrop.
