BEYOND THE NEW DEAL by David Lawrence


Email this review


David Lawrence has an established following through his radio audience and through the readers -- surprisingly many -- of The United States News. He has, too, a faculty for clear thinking and clear expression which gives him the excuse for adding another book to the already over-crowded shelves on the New Deal. Unfortunately, the theory that one good book deserves another doesn't hold water, when they harp, over much, on the same subject. And the next good book gets crowded out.... Just what Lawrence contributes that is startlingly new is doubtful -- he simply says it better than most....His main thesis is: Where there is no balanced budget the people perish, and he proves his point. He generalizes rather freely as to what the New Deal means in danger to the country at large, and he goes into some particulars. He pleads for clearer vision and greater faith in ultimate good.
