Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The third book in the eight-volume begins with his inaugural address and ends with a detailed exposition of governmental expenses and needed economies. Many of the pieces in this collection reflect "the president as a father figure," while others focus on issues of high seriousness, such as the judicial decisions in politics, government by injunction, labor issues, reforms in civil and criminal law, the tariff, income and corporation taxation, the conservation of waterways and other natural resources. No subject index. Burton is emeritus professor of history at St. Joseph's U. in Philadelphia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
