Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
'This book examines how it was possible and what it meant for ordinary factory workers to become effective unionists and national political participants by the mid-1930s.'
'Based upon prodigious research, this book carefully assesses the diversity of workers' social experience, examining African-American and Mexican workers as well as eastern and southern Europeans. At every step the argument is developed in a sophisticated way...Making a New Deal constitutes a major achievement and deserves the central position in historians' discussions that it will probably receive.'-Julia Greene in the Journal of American History
