Presidential Histories and Memoirs Series - Dr. George H. Nash
Freedom Betrayed - Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and It's Aftermath
Freedom Betrayed is the culmination of an extraordinary literary project launched by Herbert Hoover during World War II: a memoir that evolved into a comprehensive critique of U.S. foreign policy under President Franklin Roosevelt. Hoover wanted his tome to be the definitive indictment of what he called the “lost statesmanship” of his presidential successor. Made available to scholars and others for the first time in 2011, nearly half a century after Hoover’s death, the book was edited by George H. Nash. In his lecture, Dr. Nash will tell the story and assess the significance of this remarkable volume that Hoover called his “Magnum Opus” and “will and testament” to the American people.
A light reception will precede the event. Several of Dr. Nash's publications will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.
