The History Of The FDR Years

Steve Bates is recommending the The Coming of the New Deal by Arthur Schlesinger, part of Mr. Schlesinger series on FDR.

Earlier in an op-ed in the New York Times, The 1930s Sure Sound Familiar, Joe Nocera recommends looking for a history of the era that was published in 1940, Since Yesterday by Frederick Lewis Allen.

Mr. Schlesinger concentrates on what was happening in the government, while Mr. Allen’s work is more general.

Mr. Nocera had a sense of how close we are tracking to what happened during the Depression.
