Description
"'The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.' Some speeches live forever, and Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1933 inaugural address, carried to tens of millions of Americans by radio at the lowest depths of the Great Depression, remains among them. Eight days later, FDR delivered his first 'fireside chat.' When a special session of Congress adjourned after exactly 100 days, major programs for economic regulation, relief, reform and recovery were in place. Hope and optimism had been restored. [This book] focuses on this brief period, but also ranges backward and forward in time to set the stage and assess the consequences."Washington Post
