Freedom from Fear: The American People in Depression and War, 1929-1945

By David M. Kennedy | Go to book overview

Bibliographical Essay

The literature concerning the major subjects of this book -- the Great Depression, the New Deal, and World War II -- is enormous. What follows is not an exhaustive bibliography, but a highly selective one, intended as a guide for further reading.

World War I and its immediate aftermath are the subjects of David M. Kennedy, Over Here: The First World War and American Society ( New York: Oxford University Press, 1980); Thomas A. Bailey, Woodrow Wilson and the Lost Peace ( New York: Macmillan, 1944), and the same author's Woodrow Wilson and the Great Betrayal ( New York: Macmillan, 1945). Indispensable to an understanding of the war's economic sequelae are John Maynard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of the Peace ( New York: Harcourt, Brace and Howe, 1920); Charles Kindleberger, The World in Depression ( Berkeley: University of California Press, 1973); and Peter Temin, Lessons from the Great Depression ( Cambridge: MIT Press, 1989).

Frederick Lewis Allen Only Yesterday ( New York: Harper and Brothers, 1931) fixed the historical image of the 1920s in the minds of several generations of readers. Its many deficiencies can be offset by reading Preston Slosson, The Great Crusade and After ( New York: Macmillan, 1930); William E. Leuchtenburg, The Perils of Prosperity ( Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1958); Lizabeth Cohen, Making a New Deal ( New York: Cambridge University Press, 1990); Thomas J. Archdeacon, Becoming American ( New York: Free Press, 1983); Harvey Green, The Uncertainty of Everyday Life ( New York: HarperCollins, 1992); Oscar Handlin, Al Smith and His America ( Boston: Little, Brown, 1958); David Burner, The Politics of Provincialism ( New York: Knopf. 1968); Allan J. Lichtman , Prejudice and the Old Politics (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1979); and Samuel Lubell, The Future of American Politics ( New York: Harper and Row, 1952). Two exceptionally rich contemporary sources are Robert and Helen Merrell Lynd , Middletown: A Study in Modern American Culture ( New York: Harcourt, Brace and World, 1929), a classic of sociological investigation; and The President's
