Biographical Directory of the Governors of the United States, 1988-1994 (Google eBook)
State governors have always played a key role in American politics, as the careers of Presidents Clinton, Reagan, and Carter (all former governors) illustrate. This is particularly the case in the aftermath of Reaganomics, and as many government functions shift from the federal to the state level. The latest in a series covering colonial, territorial, and state governors from 1607 onward, this volume includes the period 1988-1994. Organized alphabetically by state with the governors appearing in chronological order by their terms of office, the 94 entries contain information on date and place of birth, education, religion, marriage and family, and an analysis of each governor's professional and political careers. Every sketch contains a photograph of the governor and concludes with a bibliography. A subject index and index of the governors' names completes the volume. Biographical Directory of the Governors of the United States 1988-1994 is the only reference work of its kind and is invaluable for all those seeking accurate and up-to-date information on the backgrounds and electoral activities and strategies of the most recent state governors.
