ROOSEVELT MYTH (P) 50th Anniversary Edition By John T. Flynn Introduction by Ralph Raico Fox & Wilkes, 1998 Also available in Hardcover 50th Anniversary Edition! John T. Flynn's dramatic debunking of FDR Journalist John T. Flynn was a great American champion of liberty, an insightful foe of big government, a courageous antiwar crusader, a prolific author whose long out-of-print books are cherished as classics. He had formidable storytelling gifts, as you'll discover (or rediscover) in The Roosevelt Myth. It's his most important work, revealing the truth about a man still widely revered for saving America from capitalism and from foreign aggressors. Flynn chronicles FDR's explosive spending spree and brazen assault on the Constitution which failed to get America out of the Great Depression. (There were about as many unemployed in 1940--over 11,000,000--as when FDR entered the White House in 1933.)
