The Speculator: Bernard M. Baruch in Washington, 1917-1965

By Jordan A. Schwarz
University of North Carolina Press, 1981
679 pp. $27.50
Purchase

A thorough, excessively long discussion of Baruch's ideas and his techniques for wielding influence. The portrait is on balance favorable. The treatment of the Baruch plan for control of atomic weapons, for example, is more critical of Baruch's critics than it is of Baruch.
