This textbook offers a chronological introduction to the New Deal which incorporates material on events and developments outside as well as within Washington DC and on popular reaction to the policies.
Reference is made to President Roosevelt and his role but the main emphasis is upon policy formation and implementation and the context in which the New Deal evolved. Bearing in mind the requirements of students Fiona Venn draws comparisons between American and European responses to the depression and provides explanations of American institutions and traditions as appropriate.
