Dr. James David Barberrsquo;s well-known, provocative examination of who has the potential to be voted into the highest office in the land andwhy is being reissued as the newest addition to the ldquo;Longman Classics in Political Sciencerdquo; series. Arguing that patterns in a personrsquo;s character, world view, and style can allow us to anticipate their performance as president,The Presidential Characteroffers explanations and predictions of the performance of presidents and presidential candidates. Drawing on historical, biographical, and psychological research, Dr. Barber hoped to help voters make judicious choices in determining the countryrsquo;s highest leaders. Revisiting this classic work in todayrsquo;s important presidential election season begs a reconsideration of Barberrsquo;s probing and enduring query, ldquo;What should we look for in a president?"

Gary Regan, bartender extraordinaire, was born over a pub in Lancashire, England. An expert on spirits and cocktails, he has written numerous articles on bar service and liquor. He has also worked as a consultant to restaurants and liquor companies, written about drinks and drinking, and coordinated with his wife Mardee Haidin Regan on a variety of food and beverage-oriented projects.
