The New Age of Franklin Roosevelt, 1932-1945

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Sweeping into power in the grim depression days of 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt led the nation along a road of economic experiment that changed the course of America's political and social thinking. His first "Hundred Days" were a swift transformation into the new age of social security, FDIC, and a host of other reforms. Scarcely had the New Deal become a part of American life, however, when World War II broke out, and America became a global power leading the Allies to victory, began development of the atomic bomb, and laid plans for the United Nations organization. In the opinion of many historians, F.D.R.'s thirteen years are the most important era in twentieth-century American history. Now Dexter Perkins takes an objective look at Roosevelt and his times-the great depression, the great social experiment, the great war-and presents a balanced evaluation of America from the Blue Eagle days of NRA to the shocking April afternoon of Roosevelt's death. "A fair-minded, clear, and brief guide to that complex man and even more complex era."-Frank Freidel, Christian Science Monitor

The cover has some wear to it especially on the spine and front cover, but is otherwise intact. Apart from one or two pencilled inscriptions inside, the pages are clean and in fine condition.

Oxfam Shop Leicester Market Street

The Oxfam Shop in Leicester specialises in books, music and bridalwear. The shop has two floors. The first floor consists of a large book and music department along with our great range of Sourced by Oxfam products. The second floor is mainly bridal wear including mother of bride and eveningwear. 

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
