Documents the changes to the New Deal caused by the 1937 recession and the Second World War. Brinkley briefly discusses the pre-Recession polices and then gets into extreme detail regarding the people and changes after 1937. At times I had a hard time keeping the abbreviations straight, the book could have used a listing of agencies, bureaus, committees, etc , and their abbreviations. Some knowledge of economics would be helpful to the reader. I can't recommend this to the general reader, however if you have an interest in either the New Deal or the development of liberalism, it would be worth reading.
