U.S.A. SixtiesBook - 2001
Although history has not been kind to Warren G. Harding, with personal and political scandals dominating Harding historiography until the 1960s, historians have reexamined and reappraised his presidency in the past twenty years. This volume, the first full-length bibliography on Harding, provides full access to the Harding literature.
Including over 3,000 entries, the work provides wide coverage of foreign policy and domestic policies that were formative for the entire decade of the 1920s. In addition to political and administration coverage, the book includes Harding's personal life and times. Entries include books, scholarly articles, contemporary writings, newspapers, manuscripts, photographs, and films relating to Harding and his administration. Chapters are devoted to early and mature stages of his life, Harding iconography, and figures important to his administration. The section on Harding's presidency includes foreign policies and domestic areas, such as business and economics, labor, agriculture, and topics of particular importance for the early 1920s, such as the Soldiers' Bonus, the tariff, and the Bureau of the Budget. The bibliography will be useful to all scholars doing research on the Harding era and the 1920s.
