Ranking the Presidents on Peace, Prosperity,and Liberty
Ivan Eland
Evaluating presidents on the merits of whether their policiespromoted peace, prosperity, and liberty, this ranking system takesa distinctly new approach. Historians and scholars have longtended to give higher rankings to presidents who served duringwartime, were well spoken, or exceeded in expanding the powerof the executive office. However, this new examination cutsthrough these longstanding biases and political rhetoric to offer anew nonpartisan system of ranking that is based purely on howwell each president’s policies adhered with the founders’ originalintention of limiting federal power in all its aspects.As a result,the book provides an alternative history of the United States asseen through the founders’ likely vision of subsequent presidentialactions.These presidential rankings will surprise most andenlighten even acknowledged experts on the presidency.

vatives and liberals on the crucial need to reign in White House power and restore peace, prosperity and liberty.”  —Ron Paul, U.S. congressman “According to American historians, the best presidents get us into the biggest wars, impose the most interventionist economicpolicies, and trample civil liberties by expanding executive power beyond what the Constitution permits. Eland makes a novelproposal: Why not rank presidents according to the traditional American values of peace, prosperity, and liberty? Read thisimportant new book and find out why John Tyler may be America’s greatest president!”  —Thomas DiLorenzo, professor of economics, Loyola College, Maryland, and author,
Hamilton’s Curse: How Jefferson’s Archenemy Betrayed the American Revolution 
 “A much-needed corrective to the American history we are all taught in our schools. We are propagandized to adulate all American presidents regardless of what their record might have been. Dr. Eland has provided a far more accurate account of the actions of these men (and they are indeed men, not gods). Historians who are dedicated to the truth are indebted to himfor his efforts.Ronald Hamowy, professor emeritus of history, University of Alberta
