About the Book

IMG_0240The Story

The president with a progressive reputation who proves more pragmatic than his ardent supporters had hoped. The legislators who serve the media apoplectic rhetoric. The magnates who pay no income tax and defend themselves with the perfectly true argument that doing so is 100 percent legal. And the public keenly invested in seeing everyone pay their fair share. Joseph J. Thorndike’s history of the U.S. federal tax system from the 1920s until the end of World War II might feel familiar. Yet Thorndike’s mining of governmental and popular media archives yields vital insights about our tax code and how we feel about it.
