A dispassionate view of the New Deal, a well-rounded appraisal for the man-in-the-street, and particularly for the reader of newspapers who is only too apt to jump to conclusions based on biased evidence. One cannot say that the author is either pro or con. He presents the facts. He analyzes the data from the point of view of political science. He is, in general, sympathetic and open-minded, but he raises moot questions and indicates trends. Organization charts of new federal agencies add to the practical value of the book. Sell as a handbook of the New Deal, simple enough for any intelligent reader.
