Book Cover
A Companion to Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover

The three presidents of the Republican era of 1921–1933–Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover–have frequently been caricatured, defamed, or dismissed in popular history. This Companion provides a historiographical approach to these administrations and the country they governed. Top experts on this era provide 27 essays that fully demonstrate how scholars have addressed and debated the political, economic, diplomatic, cultural, ethnic, and social history of this period, and how historians have wrestled with the controversial figures and issues of this age. The text includes chapters on popular culture, technology, eugenics, nativism, and the biographical treatment of the presidents and first ladies of the era.
