about

Lisio re-examines the events surrounding the 1932 Bonus March on Hoover's White House by outraged veterans. Included is an incisive look at the protective motives of Hoover himself and how the president came to be vilified for the actions of MacArthur. The general's retaliation against the veterans was based on a supposed communist threat - which subsequent investigation failed to confirm - yet Hoover could never extract himself politically from the storm of controversy following the event.
Donald J. Lisio is a Henrietta Arnold Professor of History at Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

From Our Editors

This book explores the background of the NRA, the most important economic measure of the first hundred days of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal.

Editorial Reviews

" . . . [the] usual picture of Hoover as a villain who provoked the riot is replaced here by one in which Hoover's humanitarian intentions were countered because General MacArthur exceeded his orders. Lisio has used newly opened manuscripts and evaluated old ones more carefully than previous authors. His chapters on how the historical conspiracy arose are superior."
