Summary "Anthony 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 Mr. Badger does so well is to consider important aspects of New Deal activity - in industry, organized labor, agriculture, welfare, and politics - and to explore the major problems in assessing the history of each. His book establishes a new standard of interpretation of Roosevelt's New Deal."--BOOK JACKET
