Summary
  • This election was the only time that six once-and-future presidents -- Warren G. Harding, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin D. Roosevelt -- were jockeying for the White House at the same time. It was the first to generate extensive newsreel coverage and to utilize modern advertising techniques. It was also the first election in which all women could vote and to have its results broadcast by radio. The Ku Klux Klan incited hatred against Catholics, blacks, and Jews, prohibition took effect, the Palmer Raids arrested more than 6,000 radicals, authorities charged Sacco and Vanzetti with murder, political terrorism first invaded lower Manhattan when a bomb rocked Wall Street, Socialist presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs garnered nearly a million votes -- from his Atlanta jail cell, and both major party campaigns exploded with sex scandals.--Adapted from dust jacket
  • "Pietrusza's new work presents a panorama of presidential personalities, ambitions, plots and counterplots, deadlocked conventions, and smoke-filled rooms - a picture of America at the crossroads of the modern era."--Jacket
