  • "Schuker, William W Corcoran Professor of History, University of Virginia "In this thoughtfully crafted volume, Clements details and analyzes both a crucial decade in Hoover's life and the ongoing whirlwinds of political and associational activity generated by his initiatives. Solidly grounded in primary evidence, it stands as the best account yet of the era's 'great administrator' and the complex set of successes and frustrations that eventually helped to make him president." - Ellis W. Hawley, University of Iowa Praise for previous volumes: "Able to bring a dimension to Hoover's private life that is missing in previous accounts." - The New York Times "A good story in fast-moving, felicitous prose ... makes all other books on Hoover during this period obsolete." - The Washington Post "A wonderfully detailed history." - Los Angeles Times "A milestone in Hoover scholarship ...-"
  • ""Herbert Hoover is one of the few figures in American history who truly requires a multivolume biography, and in the installment at hand, Clements helps us understand why. This is a richly informative and illuminating study of an oft-neglected (and too often caricatured) leader as he neared the pinnacle of a remarkable career. Professor Clements has written a discerning and necessary book." - George H. Nash, author of the first three volumes of The Life of Herbert Hoover "Clements' compendious, deeply researched, and highly sophisticated study of Herbert Hoover during the Paris Peace Conference and the Commerce years will serve as an important building block for a new understanding of the 1920s." - Stephen A.-"

  • "Throughout, the quality of the scholarship, the sifting and use of evidence, the imaginative reconstruction of relevant historical contexts, and the ability to communicate all deserve high marks." - The American Historical Review "The breadth and depth of coverage here is startlingly new. The care, precision, attention to detail, and thoroughness in tracking down even the most obscure references makes this first volume of the definitive biography of Hoover an excellent reference work as well as a mine of information for those wishing to become familiar with the details of his life." - Susan Estabrook Kennedy, The Journal of American History."

It tells the story of how Hoover the engineering progressive turned relief and war manager developed a public philosophy for dealing with a wide array of problems. It also fits Hoover into the larger thought, action, and developmental patterns of the period, interweaving his family matters, business affairs, and other projects with the larger historical context."@en
