Admittedly not my cup of tea, but could have been ~100pp shorter if he'd refrained from redundancy... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521828058, Hardcover)

Reconstructing the story of how reformers used public authority to reshape the nation, Jason Scott Smith argues that the New Deal produced a revolution in state-sponsored economic development. The scale and scope of this dramatic federal investment in infrastructure laid crucial foundations--sometimes literally--for postwar growth, prestaging the national highways and the military-industrial complex. This impressive and exhaustively researched analysis underscores the importance of the New Deal in comprehending political and economic change in modern America.
