The Blue Eagle on the cover was the symbol that FDR demanded that all businesses display as a sign of adherence to wage and price controls. To Garrett, this summed up the whole of the New Deal: a catastrophic regimentation of national life that attacked freedom and did nothing to cure the depression.

Garrett was the leading opponent of the New Deal. He drove the administration crazy with a thrilling and relentless blast in the pages of the leading news monthly the time.

The blow-by-blow perspective he brings to events is incomparably revealing of the political spirit of the time. Who can't but be grateful to the editor, Bruce Ramsey, for having put this book together?
