Abstract:

"America's thirty-fourth president was belittled by his critics as the babysitter-in-chief. This new look reveals how wrong they were.

He stimulated the economy to lift it from recession, built an interstate highway system, turned an $8 billion deficit in 1953 into a $500 million surplus in 1960"--Publisher's web site.
