    One thought on “The New Deal: The Depression Years, 1933-40”

    1. Details of the New Deal--from labor to business to artists and culture, this research covers most of it. Essentially argues that "Americans today still work out their lives in a political economy that still bears the imprint of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal," that there could not have been a New Deal with FDR, and that the New Deal is the foundation for the way that we think about the relationship between government, labor, and culture today. Fascinating.

    2. My first book about the New Deal and a subject that probably requires reading a few more books. This is more about the various policies (reasoning, implementation, outcomes, shortcomings, consequences etc.) and less about the characters involved; though there were certainly some characters involved. Each policy could justify a separate book. He also does a good job of exploring the alternative economic/social theories of the time.It's mostly accessible reading, though the author would have been [...]

    3. If the current controversy over Federal programs, spending, policies ever needed a context, this is the comprehensive book to provide it. Reading it, the arguments sound all so familiar: debate over how to help the poor in both urban and rural areas, the creation of unions that generally supported Democrats, often resisted by the wealthy land and corporate class trying to preserve and maximize profits on what they already have.

    4. Read this for a grad class, and even though it isn't the most unbiased book ever, I really enjoyed it. Sometimes you just need a nice, clear overview, even if it's tinged with bias. I had never been exposed to such a pro (or at least not negativeybe neutral) view of Hoover. I will keep this one around for reference.

    5. Great historical book on the Great Depression in the United States and FDR's New Deal from the objective perspective of a British historian.
