The Politics of Upheaval

By Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.
Houghton, 1960
749 pp. $6.95

This volume is the third of Mr. Schlesinger's "The Age of Roosevelt," and perhaps the best so far. Dealing with the years 1935-1936, it encompasses the shift from the First to the Second New Deal, the appearance of some of our more colorful demagogues (Huey Long, Father Coughlin and Dr. Townsend), the conflict with the Supreme Court, and concludes with F.D.R.'s landslide victory in 1936. An extraordinarily interesting narrative of an extraordinary era.
