This work should be taken as following on, and in conjunction with, its predecessor on "Riding." In that publication will be found various chapters on Action, The Aids, Bits and Bitting, Leaping, Vice, and on other cognate subjects which, without undue repetition, cannot be reintroduced here. These subjects are of importance to and should be studied by all, of either sex, who aim at perfection in the accomplishment of Equitation, and who seek to control and manage the saddle-horse.
With contributions from nearly 40 scholars, A Companion to the First Ladies presents the first comprehensive historiographical overview of first ladies in US history: the wivesùor sometimes other female relativesùwho have stood by US presidents, often as powerful political figures in their own right. The original essays that make up this collection address the impact of these women not only on White House responsibilities but on elections, presidential policies, and social causesùas well as on shaping their husbands' legacies. This volume brings the first ladies into crisp historiographical focus, assessing how these women and their contributions have been perceived in both popular literature and scholarly debate. Covering all of the first ladies from Martha Washington through to Michelle Obama, the volume underlines the growing scholarly appreciation for a position that has itself gone through a great deal of evolution since the early American republic.
