|Description||A reprint of the 1966 Bobbs-Merrill edition. In this anthology, edited by the author of A People's History of the United States, prominent New Dealers and their contemporaries on both the left and the right debate the proper role of government in treating such American economic and social ills as poverty, sickness, ignorance, racial inequality, and the giant gap between haves and have-nots in what was, even in the thirties, the world's richest nation. A lively Introduction by the editor examines the achievements and failures of FDR's bold domestic experiment and its legacy in an America still plagued by many of the problems at which the New Deal took aim.|
