Summary
A history of the Great Depression, focusing on the economic realities and the largely forgotten individuals and events that influenced the period, and arguing that World War II and not the New Deal policies of President Franklin Roosevelt was responsible for the economic recovery of the United States
Summary
A reinterpretation of the Great Depression seeks to demonstrate how the failures of Hoover and Roosevelt to understand the prosperity of the 1920s directly contributed to massive national burdens that marginalized everyday citizens, in an account that shares the survival stories of lesser-known historical figures from the period
