In tackling America's worst depression the New Deal brought the federal government into unprecedented contact with most Americans and shaped the political economy of the contemporary United States. This major new study incorporates the results of many recent case studies of the New Deal and provides a detailed assessment of the impact of the depression and New Deal programmes on businessmen, industrial workers, farmers and the unemployed. In his thematic analysis of the implementation of particular programmes, rather than in a narrative of policymaking, Dr Badger explains the political and ideological constraints which limited the changes wrought by the New Deal.

'A very good text, in an area not well served by comprehensive texts, which clearly identifies and addresses key areas of New Deal America.' - P.J. McGuire, University of Brighton '...this is the new central text, a triumph not only of scholarship but of fine writing.' - Journal of American Studies
