"Everybody's talking new New Deal these days... Eric Rauchway is all over this."-Paul Krugman, The New York Times
"This well written, informative and illustrated book sets the scene, introduces the analysis and paves the way for an informed debate from which we can--and should--learn much."--Andrew Dodgshon, Tribune (UK)
