The New Deal: A Global History
This presentation summarizes some of the findings of my forthcoming book with the same title (America in the world series; Princeton University Press, planned for fall 2015). How does the reaction of the United States compare to the way other societies reacted to the Great Depression and other challenges of the time? And which links did the New Deal make and unmake? In the talk, I will speak about the book’s conceptual basis as well as some of its empirical findings.
