Herbert Hoover: A Life by Glen Jeansonne is considered by some critics to be the definitive biography of Hoover. The book is a fantastic read. I came away knowing so much about Hoover-I must admit that all i knew of him was that he was President during the great market crash with implications that he may have caused it which is not true. He was called the Great Humanitarian as he was indeed. He was the major force in feeding the starving populace after the wars. He was socially a Democrat though a Republican where free markets are concerned, a small federal government, restoring the power of the Congress, and distributing power to the states and cities. In my opinion he is a very underrated President. He was terrific in all he did and I urge you to inform yourself by reading this new biography. ( )
