Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Essays from a 1995 conference held at Louisiana State University in Shreveport, Louisiana, examine and evaluate New Deal domestic policy in six areas: agriculture, the environment, housing, welfare, the economy, and industry. Papers document the experimental dimension of the New Deal that wrought a legacy of democratic change. Topics include efforts of Roosevelt and Bill Clinton to shape the environment, the effect of FDR's economic policy on Mississippi, and economic regulation of US domestic airlines.
