Abstract:

Kenneth Simpson lived at the intersection of the most powerful political currents in the first half of the twentieth century. From his upbringing in the Progressive era, to young adulthood as part of the transatlantic "lost generation" of the 1920s, to leadership among the first liberal Republicans of the 1930s, his life and career overlapped with such notables as Theodore Roosevelt, Prescott Bush, John J. McCloy, Gertrude Stein, Fiorello La Guardia, Bruce Barton, Thomas Dewey, and Wendell Willkie. Simpson's biography documents a critical struggle in American politics: the Republican party's contentious adjustment to minority status during the years of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. In fast-paced prose, this book lays out the terms of disagreement among Republicans of the 1930s and introduces the reader to key players in Grand Old Party politics both nationally and locally. Simpson's warning to Republicans in the 1930s is worth considering now: "If we turn toward reaction we might as well fold up. If we look forward we cannot miss." -- from dust jacket.
