Product description


"Edsforth has written an excellent one-volume study of the New Dealthat will be useful for college students and general readers"CHOICE

"Edsforth has done an admirable job of attempting to maintian abalanced appraoch." The Historian

"From this brilliant description of the New Deal'sresponse to the Great Depression and its transforming commitment tosocial justice and economic security for all Americans, oneunderstands why Franklin Roosevelt is 'the man of thecentury'." -- William J. vanden Heuvel, President, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute

"This lucid and insightful narrative brings us back to someessential truths that need to be retold about the human tragedy ofthe 1930s, the greatness of Franklin Roosevelt, and theachievements of his New Deal." - Michael E. Parrish, Professor of History, University of California, SanDiego


In this concise and lively volume, Ronald Edsforth presents a fresh synthesis of the most critical in twentieth-century American history. This book describes the collapse of American capitalism in the early 1930s, and the subsequent remaking of the U.S. economy during Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidency. Edsforth places the New Deal in the context of its own time, as a response to both the failed policies of the Hoover years and the rise of fascism overseas. Students and general readers alike will understand and appreciate the swift and effective actions of the Roosevelt administration that reversed the Depression and alleviated human suffering. With notable clarity, Edsforth shows how New Deal reforms created greater economic security and fostered movements for social justice.
