4730. A Nation in Torment The Great American Depression 1929-1939, by Edward Robb Ellis (read 20 Jul 2010) This history of the Depression is by a diarist newsman rather than by a historian. But much of it is absorbing reading. I thought his chapters on Insull, the 1929 Crash, the Bonus Army, Hoover, Technocracy, March 1933, the NRA, Huey Long, Father Coughlin, and Dr. Townsend are all well done and good reading. The biggest failure of the book is that there are no footnotes and so one cannot tell what he used for sources often. His attitude toward Hoover and FDR and Harry Hopkins corresponded with mine--always a factor adding to enjoyment of a book. Not a profound study but a good book to read. ( )
