’21세기 먼나라 이웃나라’를 영어로 옮겼다. 행간마다 넘치는 유머감각, 번득이는 통찰력, 넓고 깊은 정보와 해설, 풍부한 읽을거리를 생생한 영어로 번역하여, 한 장 한 장 책을 넘기는 사이에 나도 모르게 영어 실력이 향상될 수 있도록 구성했다.

단순한 단어·숙어의 평면적 영어 학습이 아닌, 역사와 문화를 영어로 얘기할 수 있는 한 차원 높은 수준의 영어학습법을 지향한다. 초대 대통령 조지 워싱턴에서 43대 대통령 G. W. 부시까지, 세계 최고 강대국으로 우뚝 선 미국을 이끌어온 대통령을 중심으로 미국의 정치역사를 꿰뚫을 수 있도록 엮었다.

미국인들의 애잔한 판타지로 남은 존 F. 케네디, 공산주의의 벽을 무너뜨려 이념대립 시대의 막을 내린 로널드 레이건, 테러와의 전쟁을 선포하며 미국이 주도하는 새로운 질서창조를 주장한 조지 부시까지. 미국 국민이 그 시대 최고의 인물로 선택했던 대통령들의 시대를 읽을 수 있다.
