Hunting the President

In American history, four U.S. Presidents have been murdered at the hands of an assassin. In each case the assassinations changed the course of American history.But most historians have overlooked or downplayed the many threats modern presidents have faced, and survived. Author Mel Ayton sets the record straight in his new book Hunting the Presidents: Threats, Plots and Assassination AttemptsFrom FDR to Obama, telling the sensational story of largely forgottenor never-before revealedmalicious attempts to slay Americas leaders.Supported by court records, newspaper archives, government reports, FBI files, and transcripts of interviews from presidential libraries, Hunting the Presidents reveals: How an armed, would-be assassin stalked President Roosevelt and spent ten days waiting across the street from the White House for his chance to shoot him How the Secret Service foiled a plot by a Cuban immigrant who told coworkers he was going to shoot LBJ from a window overlooking the presidents motorcade route How a deranged man broke into Reagans California home and attempted to strangle the former president before he was subdued by Secret Service agents. In early 1992 a mentally deranged man stalking Bush turned up at the wrong presidential venue for his planned assassination attempt The relationships presidents held with their protectors and the effect it had on the Secret Services missionHunting the Presidents opens the vault of stories about how many of our recent Presidents have come within a hairs breadth of assassination, leaving Americas fate in the balance. Most of these stories have remained burieduntil now. Includes glossy photo signature of historic pictures and documents
