The End of Reform: New Deal Liberalism in Recession and War

By Alan Brinkley (Trustee; NHC Fellow, 1988–89)

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1995

From the publisher’s description:

The End of Reform is a study of ideas and of the people who shaped them: Franklin Roosevelt, Henry Wallace, Harold Ickes, Henry Morgenthau, Jesse Jones, Tommy Corcoran, Leon Henderson, Marriner Eccles, Thurman Arnold, Alvin Hansen. It chronicles a critical moment in the history of modern American politics, and it speculates that the New Deal's retreat from issues of wealth, class, and economic power has contributed to present-day liberalism's travails.
