Burton and Anita Folsom contend that President Franklin D. Roosevelt used World War II to promote his own agenda, which according to the authors, included the expansion of the executive branch, curtailed civil liberties, and excessive spending. The authors also argue that the president’s funding of the New Deal was subsidized by cuts in defense that left the country ill-prepared for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent U.S.entry into World War II. The authors responded to questions from members of the audience.
