The seven works in the Carter Collection from the University of Arkansas Press showcase President Jimmy Carter’s lifelong relationship with writing and scholarship. These books range from commentary on Middle East politics to tales of outdoor adventure and, with First Lady Rosalynn Carter, reflections on life post-presidency. A longtime supporter of university presses, President Carter’s emphasis on high academic standards and critical thought are evident throughout these pages.
