The third in a 4-part series, includes short-form biographies of the 26th-32nd United States Presidents--beginning with Theodore Roosevelt and the anti-trust movement to WWII President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The educational feature The Presidency in Wartime explores the past and present wartime powers of our Commanders in Chief. The DVD features interviews and insights from political experts and commentators like Harry Rubenstein (Curator, Division of Politics and Reform for Smithsonian's National Museum of American History), Melissa Harris-Lacewell (Associate Professor of Politics and African-American Studies at Princeton University), Paul E. Begala (Former White House Aide), Mo Rocca (Political Commentator), Sam Donaldson (News Anchor) and many others.
