Fear Itself: Lessons From the Grand But Cynical Bargain Behind the New Deal (Episode #2104)

KQED World: Sun, Apr 20, 2014 -- 1:00 PM

Historian Ira Katznelson says that during the 1930s and 1940s, American democracy was rescued by the New Deal, and that programs like Social Security powerfully reshaped American society and created a great global power. But he says the deal behind the New Deal was distorted by a band of Southern lawmakers who forced FDR to agree to a bargain that would safeguard racial segregation for another three decades. His new book is, Fear Itself: The New Deal and the Origins of Our Time.
