Vice presidents occupy a unique and important position, living partway in the spotlight and part in the wings. Of the 48 vice presidents who have served the United States, 14 have become president; eight of these have risen to the Oval Office because of a president’s death or assassination, and one became president after his boss’s resignation. In interviews with more than two hundred people, including former vice presidents, their family members and insiders and confidants of every president since Jimmy Carter, Kate Andersen Brower pulls back the curtain and reveals the complicated relationship between our modern presidents and their vice presidents.
