Ok, I just had to put the picture up. I have no idea how good the book is going to be, but I think the subject is full of possibilities. I always thought that certain of Roosevelt's programs, the CCC for instance, were reminiscent of some of the fascist and communist programs of the era. Not that I think the CCC was evil, there are trails and dams here in Utah that were built by the CCC and my dad dreamed of joining up, but it would be interesting to see the genesis of those programs examined and put into historical context. I'm not sure Goldberg is up to it though, he might be too partisan and concerned with recent events to render a balanced judgement. We will see.
