Hardcover, 1st edition. Signed on flyleaf opposite front cover. Herbert Clark Hoover (1874-1964) served as the 31st U.S. President from 1929-1933. Hoover, who had headed the Food Administration to provide relief to Europe and Russia during and after WWI, had served as Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge (1921-1928) was a capable administrator, but he was blamed for the Great Depression and was defeated in his bid for re-election by Franklin D. Roosevelt. While Hoover states in the Introduction to this book that "it is not my purpose to criticize individual men" (10), the volume contains a detailed criticism of the policies of the New Deal, which he calls a system of "national regimentation". Pinhead sized spot at lower right of signature page. Overall, fine condition.
