Sinopsis: Book by Nancy Beck Young

Críticas: "Young s path-breaking study gives homage to the critical role that moderation can play in fostering effective governance amid national crisis. Simultaneously, it serves as testimony to the dilemmas that emerge when moderation fails to resolve the deeper conflicts at play in society, leading to intensified conflict generations down the line. This is a must-read book for all students of American politics." Lawrence C. Dodd, Manning J. Dauer Eminent Scholar in Political Science, University of Florida" "A significant study of Congress at the crossroads between the New Deal and the postwar era. Based on prodigious research, it substantially expands our knowledge of that pivotal moment in American history."--Donald A. Ritchie, author of Electing FDR: The New Deal Campaign of 1932 �A significant study of Congress at the crossroads between the New Deal and the postwar era.

Dauer Eminent Scholar in Political Science, University of Florida �This important and fascinating work reveals that the decisive struggles of the 1940s took place not only on military battlefields but on Capitol Hill as well. An ambitious and original approach to American political history, essential for scholars and full of insight for citizens who wonder what has happened to Congress's bygone culture of practical compromise and effective governance.�--Geoffrey Kabaservice, columnist, The New Republic, and author of Rule and Ruin "Young's path-breaking study gives homage to the critical role that moderation can play in fostering effective governance amid national crisis.

[I]t was what it is today and has been throughout its history, a messy democracy with a host of conflicting views, arguments, and antagonists. On the surface, the nation appeared united, even as political leaders battled behind the scenes among themselves. The book shows us how the country overcame this cumbersome, imperfect situation in spite and because of it."--Army History "Essential reading for those interested in American politics and the emergence of the modern warfare state."--Journal of American Studies Young s path-breaking study gives homage to the critical role that moderation can play in fostering effective governance amid national crisis.
