About the Author

Anthony Badger teaches American history at Cambridge University. He has also written Prosperity Road: The New Deal, North Carolina, and Tobacco.


Masterfully deserves high marks for its clear and lively prose, sound judgments, and penetrating insights. -- Ellis W. Hawley, University of Iowa A superb one-volume synthesis of the Roosevelt years...Badger never loses sight of the critical elements of change and continuity that marked the decade. -- Dan T. Carter Extraordinarily well researched, clearly written, and balanced. -- James Patterson An admirable, unique overview and analysis...This is the finest survey since William Leuchtenburg's Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal, which appeared more than a quarter-century ago. -- Frank Freidel
