Summary
Often dismissed as passive, unsympathetic, paralyzed by national events, Hoover in fact struggled to respond to the Great Depression. In public Hoover was shy and retiring. In private he was intense, passionate, and sometimes furious--a man who perceived plots against him and raged against his enemies. He was also more sophisticated and proactive in economic policy than is often recognized, anticipating programs of strategic investment and quantitative easing that were deployed against the Great Recession eighty years later. But his best efforts could not avert the national nightmare, and his technical efforts were quickly eclipsed by the political mastery of the man who became his nemesis--Franklin Delano Roosevelt
