The Great Depression: The United States in the Thirties

Front Cover
Bobbs-Merrill, 1968 - 218 pages
"Here is Robert Goldston's gripping account of an unforgettable decade. Here are the cranks and the demagogues who rose to power through the fears and dreams of a weary America: the Father Coughlins, the Doctor Townsends, the Huey P. Longs. Here is FDR's New Deal ; the rise of labor ; the awful ordeal of the Dust Bowl ; and finally World War II, which wrote an end to the the Depression. With the remarkable clarity that he brought to The Life and Death of Nazi Germany, Robert Goldston analyzes the complex elements that form the answers to the two big questions: How did it happen? And could it happen again?"--Back cover.
