Having been a fan of Mr Schivelbusch's varied work for many years, I recently had the opportunity to dine with him at the home of friends of mine. I was interested to learn that he was a man of the Left, whose views were very different from mine. It is a tribute to his ability as a scholar that I never would have guessed his affiliations. He follows the truth where he finds it and never lets his own biases seep into his work.
He is a careful and diligent researcher. By way of example, T. Harry Williams' Pulitzer Prize winning biography of Huey Long merely casts doubt on those who attribute to Long the most famous of his quotes to the effect that "when Fascism comes to America, it will come in the guise of anti-Fascism." Williams does not make any serious attempt to track down the origin of the attribution, something you would expect from the author of a nearly 1000 page biography. In this short work, in a learned and careful footnote, Schivelbusch offers a variety of possible sources for this quote. THAT is careful research!
I highly recommend Three New Deals.
My only criticism is the minimal coverage of Mussolini's corporate state that was actually the blueprint for Hitler's programs and Roosevelt's New Deal. Mainly the comparisons are between Germany and the United States.
This book could have also been longer with a more in depth review of these three societies. For a more in depth analogy albeit more politically-biased review, I would recommend 'Liberal Fascism.'
