Herbert Hoover

Authors: Edgar Robinson, Vaughn Davis Bornet
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1492-9

This detailed account of Herbert Hoover’s presidency reveals him as a staunch defender of constitutional government and one of our least understood presidents. Battling political partisanship while trying to place the needs of the nation as a whole over those of state and localities, Hoover found his program for America’s entry into the new scientific era overwhelmed by profound changes in the social and economic structure of a nation entering a new age.
