The Carter Years.

James Earl Carter.

Our series on The Carter Years looks back at the brief but remarkable tenure of President Jimmy Carter. In Part One we cover Carter's rise to the Presidency. Part Two peers into the first half of the White House years to understand the challenges that faced the new administration. In Part Three, trouble brews from within the Democratic ranks, and the global economy plus several bad actors abroad coalesce seemingly overnight to challenge the president. And lastly, the final installment of the series examines the events of 1980 and offers some final reflections on Jimmy Carter the man, and his legacy.
