Reviews

"In FDR and Fear Itself, Davis W. Houck presents the most searching analysis and the most detailed historical investigation of FDR's first inaugural address that has ever been published. To this considerable accomplishment Houck adds a fascinating and imaginative reconstruction of the composition and the reception of the address as seen through the eyes of speechwriter Raymond Moley, rendered in novelistic detail. A grand performance-psychologically compelling, frankly controversial, zestfully attentive to historical detail."--Thomas W. Benson, Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Rhetoric, Penn State University
