This book clearly, but somewhat repetitiously, shows that FDR used
the political means to accumulate wealth for himself and his Wall Street associates.
He was quite conscious of the nature of government as the organization of the
political means, and he was a virtuoso of political exploitation. The book is
written from a right-wing, free-market perspective, and, therefore, makes more
sense to me than any left-wing muckraking books dealing with similar subjects.
