Archer is the author of the only book that focuses exclusively on the fascist plot to oust President F.D. Roosevelt. Now out of print, Archer's book on this subject is called The Plot to Seize The White House (New York: Hawthorne Books, 1973). Soon after publishing this, Hawthorne Books went out of business. Second-hand copies are now available for as much as US$250. Contact your local library to borrow a copy through interlibrary loan, it's well worth it.
