Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.:
One may investigate the causes, duration, and outcome of the Great Depression, the period of time when more than 20 percent of Americans were unemployed. They discover how people coped, what new inventions came about, and how the economics of the country affected the arts, sciences, and politics of the times. The decade saw the inauguration of many social programs that Americans still benefit from today. The combination of President Roosevelts New Deal and the dawning of World War II gave enough economic stimulus to boost the United States out of its slump and into a new era of recovery.
