One will not learn the cause of the Great Depression from Watkins book (for that read "Creature from Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin) or learn of the Wall Street greed factor (for that read Sy Hardings "Riding the Bear") that contributed so much to the Depressions birth. This IS a rather interesting collection of anecdotes/stories that vividly paint how the Depression was, just dont pay full price or youll regret it.

This course examines the transforming effect of two cataclysmic events in the twentieth century. We will study the ways in which both the Great Depression and World War II led to a major reordering of American politics and society. By focusing on how the government and the country dealt with these national crises, we will explore a significant moment in the evolution of American political culture. In other words, we will examine how ordinary people experienced depression and war and how those experiences changed their outlook on politics and the world around them. Topics include unemployment and economic decline, the rise of organized labor, New Deal politics, women in the war effort, the Japanese internment, the development of atomic science, and America as a world superpower. This class will consist of a combination of lectures and discussions. You will be required to do the reading in advance and come prepared to talk about what you have read. To help facilitate discussion, you will write a 1-page response to the readings. Occasionally, you will gather primary documents from the library and/or the web. In addition to class assignments and discussion, you will each write two 5-page papers on the assigned readings. There will be a final exam at the end of the semester.

Activities Board Books Bylaws ... FDR TIMELINE
©1999 Duane R. Chartier The stock market crash of October 1929 was effectively the beginning of a very new and important era for the United States and for the world. The global economic recession that followed was most strongly felt in the United States. By 1932, US industrial output fell 54% and there was 25-30% unemployment. This was partially the result of lack of confidence in the economic and financial institutions of the country. This lack of consumer confidence led to a downward spiral as fewer factory orders were placed and more and more jobs were lost. The Great Depression was a period of introspection and reevaluation for the United States. Due to the strong economic and political ties to the United States after WWI, the European industrial economies also suffered severe problems. It can be argued strongly that the rise of Adolf Hitler was only possible because of the very bleak economic landscape of Germany in the early 1930's. Hitler used rearmament of Germany as a driving force to restart the German economy and by 1936 the economic depression in Germany was effectively over. The situation was more severe in the United States and a very great contributor to the problem was the great drought that created the "Dust Bowl" that extended over a large region of the Great Plains

    Franklin D. Roosevelt had campaigned against Herbert Hoover in the 1932 presidential election by saying as little as possible about what he might do if elected. Through even the closest working relationships, none of the president-elect’s most intimate associates felt they knew him well, with the exception perhaps of his wife, Eleanor. The affable, witty Roosevelt used his great personal charm to keep most people at a distance. In campaign speeches, he favored a buoyant, optimistic, gently paternal tone spiced with humor. His first inaugural address found here in text and audio took on an unusually solemn, religious quality. Roosevelt’s first inaugural address outlined in broad terms how he hoped to govern and reminded Americans that the nation’s "common difficulties" concerned "only material things."

    Roosevelt's program was called the New Deal and the many programs initaited help change the face of the United States: Social Security, the Tennessee Valley Authority, rural electrification, the Works Progress Administration (WPA), protection for union organizers, and many others. Roosevelt managed to achieve needed social legislation in a still very conservative country. His genius was in pursuing "nobel objectives within the tactics of the feasible". [Freidel] This was done by persuing issues that could be addressed and leaving other issues, such as Civil Rights which would have split the new Demicratic coalition, for the future.
