The President's Table offers a sweeping visual history of the American Presidency as seen through Presidential entertaining from George Washington to George W. Bush.

In this lavishly illustrated history of Presidential dining, historian Barry Landau brings the backstory of the American Presidency to life. Interweaving stories of dining and diplomacy, he creates a spellbinding narrative from the early days of provincial entertaining in the capital, through the golden era of sumptuous state banquets, to the modern White House dinners of today.

With more than 300 never before seen illustrations, The President's Table provides an insightful and entertaining look at our dining habits as the nation grew through social and economic change. The book reveals the parallel growth of the United States and its Chief Executives, and the diplomatic and political interests served along with Presidential meals. The President's Table will fascinate anyone with an interest in American history and Presidential politics.

About the Author:

Barry H. Landau is a presidential historian and one of the foremost collectors of presidential memorabilia and artifacts. He has served eight Presidents and worked with every White House since Lyndon Johnson's planning historic events. The late Arthur Schlesinger, quoted on Landau's recent book, The President's Table, said that “Landau weaves these previously missing links of Presidential history, into a fascinating tapestry and narrative of Presidential lore. The Washington Post wrote, Landau's “connections that bridge the world of politics, entertainment and theatre”....and built a network of the powerful and famous, creating a niche as a liaison between the world of politics and entertainment.”
