Who has a stake in the way a president's public image is presented? How do the performances--exhibitions across a range of media--in a presidential museum shape our understanding of the president as a subject? And how do diverse performances of the presidency create radically different opportunities for the practice of American citizenship? In Presidential Libraries as Performance: Curating American Character from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush, author Jodi Kanter considers these questions and more and analyzes presidential libraries and museums as performances that create important models for civic behavior.
