The 31st President of the United States, Herbert Hoover wrote more than two dozen books throughout his lifetime, including The Challenge to Liberty, a harsh criticism of the New Deal. Hoover feared that the New Deal was a threat to the country's 'freedom of mind and spirit.' He criticized he National Recovery Administration and Agricultural Adjustment Administration as 'fascistic,' and the 1933 Banking Act as a 'move to gigantic socialism.' Octavo, 212 pp. A very nice copy of this important work.
