Book News
Culver, former US senator and representative, and journalist Hyde note the paradox that Wallace (1885-1965) was the son of prominent midwestern Republicans but became the emblematic leftist politician of his time. They portray him as an agriculturalist of international renown, a prolific author, groundbreaking economist, successful businessman, and shy politician. They place him in the social and political milieu of turn-of-the-century Iowa and of Washington politics between the wars. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
