Editorial Reviews


«This volume is an interesting account of presidential leadership, public policy, and the conflicts that are the stuff of partisan politics.» (Michael P. Riccards, The Historian)
«This study explores two historically significant, yet unaccountably neglected matters in twentieth-century America: the development and impact of public power and the maturation of modern American liberalism. Dr. de Luna supports her work with a truly impressive array of primary source materials.» (Roland L. De Lorme, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of History, Western Washington University)
«Phyllis de Luna has produced a masterful historical analysis of the highly divisive issue of federal electric power policy during the last Truman administration. Dr. de Luna provides an angle of vision to the public power debate that until now had remained unexplained. This is history as it should be written.» (Burton M. Smith, Professor of History University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada)
«This work is recommended to anyone interested in the history of power policy in the twentieth century.» (Craig Wollner, H-Net Reviews in the Humanities and Social Sciences)
