Descripción

First Edition. Inscribed: 'To Charles R. Crane Esq/With the regards of the author.' xiii, 288 pp; ads. Original cloth. Very Good. 'Writing in After Seven Years, which was his 1939 account of his role as an advisor to FDR, Raymond Moley credited Van Hise with the underlying philosophy of the New Deal's National Industrial Recovery Act, stating: 'The source of that philosophy, as I've suggested earlier, was Van Hise's Concentration and Control, and it was endlessly discussed, from every angle, during the 'brain trust' days. In several of his campaign speeches F.D.R. had touched upon the idea of substituting, for the futile attempt to control the abuses of anarchic private economic power, by smashing it to bits, a policy of cooperative business-government planning to combat the instability of economic operations and the insecurity of livelihood. The beliefs that economic bigness was here to stay; that the problem of government was to enable the whole people to enjoy the benefits of mass production and distribution (economy and security); and that it was the duty of government to devise, with business, the means of social and individual adjustment to the facts of the industrial age—these were the heart and soul of the New Deal. . . . . And if ever a man seemed to embrace this philosophy wholeheartedly, that man was Franklin Roosevelt' [P. 184]' (Wikipedia). Charles Richard Crane (1858–1939) 'was a wealthy American businessman, heir to a large industrial fortune and connoisseur of Arab culture, a noted Arabist. His widespread business interests gave him entree into domestic and international political affairs where he enjoyed privileged access to many influential power brokers at the top levels of government. His special arena of interest was Eastern Europe and the Middle East' (Wikipedia). N° de ref. de la librería 21132
