Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Nine essays originally presented at a September 1995 conference at Louisiana State University examine Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal era from the perspectives of social and cultural history, political science, popular culture, and political history, among others. The papers discuss the art, architecture, and music of the 1930s, and popular culture in connection with the era. A sampling of topics includes the representation of FDR in film and popular culture, New Deal art and art policy, baseball, and the social and political meanings of public architecture. Annotation c.
