The New Deal: The Depression Years, 1933-40
Mr. Badger's notably successful history is not simply another narrative of the New Deal, nor does the figure of Franklin Roosevelt loom as large in his account as in some others. What he does is to consider important aspects of New Deal activity in industry, organized labor, agriculture, welfare, and politics and explores the major problems in interpreting the history of each. "The finest survey since William Leuchtenburg's Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal." Frank Freidel."
