1928. This is the story of the man who gained his idealism of unswerving integrity and spiritual quality from his mother; and his love of human contacts, his shy but unfailing sense of humor, and his interest in mechanics from his father. Hoover was a mining engineer working throughout the world and helped lay the foundation for federal regulation of radio broadcasting and commercial aviation in the United States. He was the 31st President, but was defeated in his offer for reelection.
Herbert Clark Hoover (August 10, 1874 – October 20, 1964) was the 31st President of the United States (1929–1933). Hoover, born to a Quaker family, was a professional mining engineer. He achieved American and international prominence in humanitarian relief efforts in war-torn Belgium and served as head of the U.S. Food Administration before and during World War I. As the United States Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge, he promoted partnerships between government and business under the rubric "economic modernization".
In the presidential election of 1928, Hoover easily won the Republican nomination, despite having no elected-office experience. Hoover is the most recent cabinet secretary to be elected President of the United States, as well as one of only two Presidents (along with William Howard Taft) elected without electoral experience or high military rank. America was at the height of an economic bubble at the time, facilitating a landslide victory for Hoover over Democrat Al Smith.
Condition is Very Good. Small wear to edges, dull patch to upper boards near top, first/last few pages have a faint maybe paper clip indent, text block sprung from spine as issued so could be tighter, pages/hinges are very good for over 85 years old!!!
When you think of buying a book, think about what you would normally pay for one at a normal bookstore nowadays, typically $20.00 to $30.00 for a book with no craftsmanship and history, no mystique, most that I try and sell are truly a work of art in of themselves, as well as a Great Investment that will continue to go up in value and not to mention the Centuries of Wisdom!!!
