Description : When Franklin D. Roosevelt promised "a new deal for the American people," he gave hope to millions of Americans impoverished by the Great Depression. The Roosevelt administration's relief programs, implemented in a period of crisis characterized by the "Black Friday" stock market crash, widespread bank failures, and massive unemployment, marked the turning point in the making of modern America. Yet in spite of extensive aid provided on federal and state levels, the enormity of the economic problems throughout the country left much of the president's pledge unfulfilled. In this interpretive overview, Roger Biles discusses the factors contributing to the Great Depression and analyzes the federal government's emerging role in public welfare. Focusing on various segments of society, he assesses New Deal programs in terms of their impact on the lives of the American people, including the working class, women, African Americans, and urban dwellers. While drawing on scholarship of the past twenty years, he offers fresh insights into the social effects of Roosevelt's policies and stimulates new thinking on the question of whether the reforms preserved the foundations of American federalism or represented a second American revolution. In conclusion Biles weighs the New Deal's successes and failures, both of which he finds to be part of the same story, "a story that can only be understood with an appreciation for the context of the Depression years." A New Deal for the American People explores that context with sensitivity. This clearly written and highly readable study will engage both specialists and general readers interested in a balanced account of one of the most important programs of twentieth-century America, Roosevelt's New Deal.

Description : The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Political and Legal History brings together, in one authoritative reference work, an unparalleled wealth of information about the laws, institutions, and actors that have governed America throughout its history. Embracing the interconnectedness of politics and law, The Encyclopedia addresses all aspects of both spheres, from presidents and Supreme Court justices to specifics of policy history, critical legislation, and party formation.

Clearly demonstrating how US politics and law have evolved since the colonial era, The Encyclopedia encourages readers to anticipate further changes. With over 450 articles by expert scholars, each signed entry features numerous cross references and discussion of political and legal history as well as additional sources for further study. This two-volume A-to-Z compendium is a reference work of unparalleled depth and scope and will introduce a new generation of readers to the complexities of this dynamic field of study. It also features extensive cross-referencing, a topical outline, and a subject index.

Description : Years before the Dust Bowl exodus raised America's conscience to the plight of its migratory citzenry, an estimated one to two million homeless, unemployed Americans were traversing the country, searching for permanent community. Often mistaken for bums, tramps, hoboes or migratory laborers, these transients were a new breed of educated, highly employable men and women uprooted from their middle- and working-class homes by an unprecedented economic crisis. The Homeless Transient in the Great Depression investigates this population and the problems they faced in an America caught between a poor law past and a social welfare future. The story of the transient is told from the perspective of the federal, state, and local governments, and from the viewpoint of the social worker, the community, and the transient. In narrowing the focus of the study from the national to the state level, Joan Crouse offers a close and sensitive examination of each. The choice of New York as a focal point provides an important balance to previous literature on migrancy by shifting attention from the Southwest to the Northeast and from a preoccupation with rejection on the federal level to the concerted effort of the state to deal with the non-resident poor in a humane yet fiscally responsible manner.

Description : This book provides high school and undergraduate students, and other interested readers, with a comprehensive survey of science fiction history and numerous essays addressing major science fiction topics, authors, works, and subgenres written by a distinguished scholar. This encyclopedia deals with written science fiction in all of its forms, not only novels and short stories but also mediums often ignored in other reference books, such as plays, poems, comic books, and graphic novels.

Provides readers with information about written science fiction in all its forms—novels, stories, plays, poems, comic books, and graphic novels Includes original interviews with major writers like Ted Chiang, Samuel R. Delany, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Connie Willis that are not available elsewhere Features numerous sidebars with additional data about various subjects and key passages from several classic works Includes hundreds of bibliographies of sources that provide additional information on various specific topics and the genre of science fiction as a whole

Description : This book challenges generally accepted views by concluding that the critical press, so often characterized by pro-New Deal historians as conservative or reactionary, was in fact a good deal more liberal than Roosevelt and his advisors. Without its opposition to Roosevelt's policies during the years before Congress began to reassert its constitutional responsibilities, the United States might well have deviated considerably from the path of constitutional and democractic government. From 1933 to 1938 the critical press (both newspapers and journalists) fulfilled much of the function of (and perceived of itself as) the equivalent of a parliamentary opposition to Roosevelt's policies and programs, since this was a period when the Republican opposition was moribund and Congress was generally submissive to the executive branch. Best describes the reaction of the critical press to FDR's domestic policies toward enhancement of the power of the White House at the expense of Congress and the Supreme Court. This enhancement gradually led many in the press to conclude that the basis for dictatorial rule was being laid by Roosevelt and/or those around him. This study will be of interest to historians and students of history.

Description : "Franklin D. Roosevelt is the only twentieth century president commonly ranked by historians with the Founding Fathers and Abraham Lincoln. His leadership in the darkest hours of our history, the depression years and the Second World War, has endowed him in the eyes of many with an aura of unsurpassable greatness. His presidency has been the explicit or implicit model for all subsequent occupants of the White House from Truman to Bush. Moreover, popular expectations of what the president should do and be trace their origins to FDR's presidency. He remains, nearly five decades after his death, an enduring presence in American life. Like the Founders and the Great Emancipator, FDR as a historical figure is surrounded by a penumbra of mythology, indeed, of mystification, that has made his personality and presidency more enigmatic than they need be." "In this concise biography, Patrick J. Maney provides an original and insightful examination of Roosevelt's life and legacy. Maney carefully distinguishes fact from myth, and shows that many widely held ideas about Roosevelt - for instance, his supposed mastery of the legislative process, or the attribution to him of a cunningly pursued "master plan" - are unsupported by the historical evidence. More importantly, Maney shows how and why the Roosevelt legend arose, and how it has permanently affected the American presidency. Maney traces the origins of the "Roosevelt presence," his larger-than-life image, to his first term, when both friends and foes of the president began to attribute to him virtually superhuman feats. This image, which has persisted to this day, was rooted in Roosevelt's "knack for identifying himself in the public mind with the New Deal, including those measures to which he had originally been opposed or indifferent; in his matchless skills as a communicator; and most important, in his ability to create an illusion of intimacy between himself and the public." Maney concludes that FDR's legacy to his successors, despite his undoubted service to the nation in its hour of need and his many admirable qualities, is laden with irony and ambiguity. Perhaps most significantly, Roosevelt's legend has led the public to entertain unrealistic expectations of the presidency. Though Roosevelt was clearly a "great" president, Maney finds that FDR's greatness was inextricably rooted in the circumstances of his own time, and so could not be imitated, still less duplicated, by future presidents."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
