Overview

In this update of the 1996 edition, a freelance scholar presents a well-referenced volume on a pivotal period in US and world history. In a volume with many eyewitness accounts, capsule biographies of key figures, poignant period photos, and a new appendix of statistical tables and figures on employment and other trends during the Great Depression, he traces factors leading to the 1929 stock market crash to the economic upswing triggered by World War II . Excerpts from two dozen relevant documents, including President Hoover's and Roosevelt's State of the Union addresses, and the Social Security Act (1935), are included.
