Hardback: Cloth over boards with Pastedown Titles at the front panel and backstrip. Garet Garrett (February 19, 1878 – November 6, 1954), born Edward Peter Garrett, was an American journalist and author, who is noted for his opposition to the New Deal and U.S. involvement in World War II. Garett was called a conservative in his obituary, and, after his death, his book The People's Pottage was adopted as one of the "twelve candles" of the John Birch Society. He is now sometimes called a member of the Old Right, and is seen as a libertarian or classical liberal. Under editor George Horace Lorimer at the Saturday Evening Post, in the 1920s, Garrett attacked proposals for American forgiveness of the war debts of European states and for the bailout of American farmers. After the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, he became one of the most vocal opponents of Roosevelt's centralization of political and economic power in the federal government. He attacked the New Deal in articles in the Saturday Evening Post between 1933 and 1940. In 1940, he became the Post's editorial-writer-in-chief. Garrett opposed the Roosevelt administration's moves toward intervention in the Second World War in Europe and was one of the most widely read non-interventionists. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Garrett supported the war but was still fired from the Post. Garrett's novel The Driver, which is about a speculator called Henry M. Galt who takes over a failing railroad, was the source of the name "Galt" and the rhetorical device, "Who is John Galt?" for Ayn Rand in her novel, Atlas Shrugged, which has a mystery character named John Galt. Both The Driver and Atlas Shrugged have to do with running railroads during an economic depression, and both suggest pro-capitalist ways in which the country might get out of the depression.
