From the cover:
Rexford G. Tugwell, who knew Roosevelt well and was a member of FDR’s “brain Trust,” here writes about FDR’s successors for the first time. But Off Course: from Truman to Nixon is much more than a study of Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. It is also a brilliant summing-up of the period, with Mr. Tugwell’s reflections on the problems of the Presidency and our way of selecting Presidents.
