  1. This is a poorly written book The author takes a difficult era to understand and makes it even confusing Paragraph to paragraph, sentence to sentence and word to word this book has no coherence and it is difficult to read If you want inaccessible history and academic jargon then this book is for you.

  2. This book is a highly critical survey of the New Deal, and it can serve two purposes First, it provides a concise and readable secondary source for students interested in FDR s domestic reform program Second, it s a fine example of the type of left leaning revisionist history that came into vogue during the 1960s, and thus can be used a primary source for scholars studying trends in 20th century historical writing Although I often found Conkin to be extraordinarily rough in his treatment of FDR, [...]

  3. Three stars doesn t mean I entirely agreed with Conkin, but he gave me a lot to think about The New Deal was a much complex program than I had imagined, with many different advisers working toward different goals, while FDR gave charismatic leadership but not clear direction An essay in photos included in the book was a high point who ever grows out of a childish love of looking at the pictures

  4. One of the few books in graduate school I can say I really disliked I hate having someones personal snarky philosophy shoved down my throat His condescending tone really just drove me crazy Thank goodness the book was only a hundred pages long.
