An important contribution to source material on recent American history-in-the-making, and sure to be a text book, to some extent, in the coming platform building and election campaigning. A brilliant piece of selective editing of documentary evidence drawn from Hoover's own writing and statements, from contemporary publications, from Congressional records. A running commentary makes the connecting links and points up the evidence which makes President Hoover much more of an administrator, of a constructive builder, of a far-seeing statesman, than popular opinion gives him credit for being. Definitely a book for the stand-pat Republicans, for these antagonistic to the present administration, for anyone sincerely interested in getting all sides of the question. Myers is Professor of Politics at Princeton, New was Member of Congress from 1919-1920 and secretary to the President from 1929 to 1933....Now is the time to keep track of books of current political importance, and to play them up together, making plus sales.
