New Deals: Business, Labor, and Politics in America, 1920-1935by Colin Gordon, Hottel
Pub. Date: 08/26/1994
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Arguing that the labor and welfare law of the latter New Deal grew from a response to the competitive instability of the period, the origins and premises of the policies of the 1920s and 1930s are reassessed in the first major reinterpretation of the New Deal in thirty years.
