KIRKUS REVIEW

Has a good chance for a quick turnover, with somewhat the sort of market of Oh Yeah. A book that Democrats will seize upon with gusto, proclaiming the fact that it is actually written by anti-New Dealers, and they have condemned themselves out of their own mouths. A clever culling of actual statements made over a period of four years, showing that the Administration does not stand alone in contradictions. Arranged under running heads carrying the names of the perpetrators of these incredible statements: Al Smith suggesting we ""shelve the Constitution""; Landon stating that he ""plans to enlist with President Roosevelt for duration of the war against depression""; the President of the Liberty League stating ""Our unbalanced budget is the result of 11 years of Republican misrule."" A book people will rejoice to quote. And a grand selling jacket showing the grass growing on Wall Street!
