Summary
Prizewinning historian Glen Jeansonne delves into the life of our most misunderstood president, offering up a surprising new portrait of Herbert Hoover -- dismissing previous assumptions and revealing a political Progressive in the mold of Theodore Roosevelt, and the most resourceful American since Benjamin Franklin. --
Summary
An examination of Herbert Hoover argues that he was not a "do-nothing" president, as he is often remembered, but was instead a steadfast leader who became the moral voice of the GOP and a champion of Republican principles, in a book that also looks at his strict upbringing and successes leading up to the presidency
