This “definitive biography of Indiana Gov. Paul V. McNutt” shows the politician’s “importance on the national stage" through the Great Depression and WWII (Indianapolis Star). The 34th Governor of Indiana, head of the WWII Federal Security Agency, and ambassador to the Philippines, Paul V. McNutt was a major figure in mid-twentieth century American politics whose White House ambitions were effectively blocked by his friend and rival, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. This historical biography explores McNutt’s life, his era, and his relationship with FDR. McNutt’s life underscores the challenges and changes Americans faced during an age of economic depression, global conflict, and decolonialization. With extensive research and detail, biographer Dean J. Kotlowski sheds light on the expansion of executive power at the state level during the Great Depression, the theory and practice of liberalism as federal administrators understood it in the 1930s and 1940s, the mobilization of the American home front during World War II, and the internal dynamics of the Roosevelt and Truman administrations.
