Overview

The M.E.Sharpe Library of Franklin D.Roosevelt Studies: v. 1 by Nancy Beck Young, William D. Pederson, Byron W. Daynes

Although Roosevelt had no single plan to alter Congress's role, the incremental changes adopted during the New Deal transformed Congress. Examining the immediate reactions of groups in Congress and beyond, and the long-term effects, this study offers insights into a key period in US politics.
