Summary

These persuasive essays, which are the product of a Conversation in the Discipline held at State University of New York at Geneseo in 1973, offer a definitive reevaluation of the Hoover era in the centennial year of his birth.

Leading scholars with access to the presidential papers reappraise Hoover's controversial presidency depicting Hoover as a progressive intellectual--the first anti-depression president--who waged a superb campaign in 1928 and enacted a non-coercive foreign policy.

The pioneer effort of these sophisticated and innovative analyses will revise historians' attitudes towards Hoover, as well as towards the Progressive and New Deal eras.

Martin L. Fausold is Professor of History at State University of New York at Geneseo. He received his B.A. from Gettysburg College and his Ph.D. from Syracuse University. He has written Gifford Pinchot: Bullmoose Progressive, as well as numerous articles and reviews.

George T. Mazuzan is Assistant Professor of History at State University of New York at Geneseo. University of Vermont awarded him his B.S. and M.A., and his Ph.D. was conferred by Kent State University. He has published several articles.
