Abstract

This is a book review of Destiny's Consul: America's Ten Greatest Presidents by Michael P. Riccards. Riccards, the executive director of the Hall Institute of Public Policy in New Jersey, has previously examined a wide-ranging and eclectic mix of topics in American government and policy. Besides the office of the presidency, for instance, he has explored the Roman Catholic Church, New Jersey politics, sports and manhood in contemporary America, as well as American higher education. With Destiny's Consul, he is revisiting a subject he understands extremely well; at the same time, he is clearly targeting an audience much broader than political scientists and public policy scholars.
