On publication, reviewers praised American Individualism as a work that ranks "among the few great formulations of American political theory" (New York Times). Published while serving as President Hardings Secretary of Commerce, this important early work by President Herbert Hoover represented, to historian Frederick Jackson Turner, clear "evidence of a mind seeking to adapt pioneering traditions to the problems of an industrial and urban age" (Hawley, 3).
