Herbert Hoover

A Life

David Luhrssen, Glen Jeansonne

Glen Jeansonne’s biography takes a fresh look at the successes of the ‘do-nothing’ president, who suffered a landslide defeat in 1933. Tracing his ethic for hard work to his Quaker upbringing, it explores his humanitarian achievements in the First World War, his efforts to modernize industry, and the steps he took to improve the welfare of workers and children, arguing that he was unfairly blamed for the Depression and remained the moral voice of the Republicans.
