Prosperity, Depression and the New Deal (Access to History)

by PeterClements (Author)


This second edition focuses on the US domestic policies of the inter-war period. It has been throughly updated to take into account recent interpretations of the period. In addition, a new chapter provides coverage of the social and political developments in the 1920s. The accessible narrative charts the tensions of the 1920s through to the apparent economic stability and prosperity of the decade, the onset of the Depression and the political policy of the New Deal. Crucial issues such as the urban-rural divide, the factors which led to the Wall Street Crash and its relationship with the Great Depression, and the purpose and significance of the New Deal are analysed in depth. The updated study guides provide a firm basis for answering source-based and essay questions.
