629. The Age of Roosevelt: The Crisis of the Old Order 1919-1933, by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. (read 12 Oct 1960) (Bancroft Prize in 1958)(Parkman Prize for 1958) As one who grew up in the Hoover-engineered Depression, I really enjoyed this book, and had no doubt it was a factual account of the time leading to the triumph of 1932 ( )

Very relevant in today's economic climate. Especially as it relates to a change from Republican to Democrat. ( )

This is a great collection. It is actually three volumes about the Great Depression, FDR, and the New Deal. This particular book focuses on the end of WWI and the "roaring 20s", Hoover and his presidency, and the beginning of the Great Depression. It is a really great and informative read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618340858, Paperback)

The Crisis of the Old Order, 1919-1933, volume one of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and biographer Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.’s Age of Roosevelt series, is the first of three books that interpret the political, economic, social, and intellectual history of the early twentieth century in terms of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the spokesman and symbol of the period. Portraying the United States from the Great War to the Great Depression, The Crisis of the Old Order covers the Jazz Age and the rise and fall of the cult of business. For a season, prosperity seemed permanent, but the illusion came to an end when Wall Street crashed in October 1929. Public trust in the wisdom of business leadership crashed too. With a dramatist’s eye for vivid detail and a scholar’s respect for accuracy, Schlesinger brings to life the era that gave rise to FDR and his New Deal and changed the public face of the United States forever.
