Kundrecensioner

Working people created a new America in the s and s which was a fundamental departure from the feudalistic and hierarchical America which existed before. In the process, class politics re-defined the political agenda of America as—for the first and time in American history—the political universe polarized along class lines.

The author explores the meaning of the new deal political mobilization by ordinary people by examining the changes it brought to the local, county, and state levels in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and Pennsylvania as a whole. This book explores the relation between democracy and industrialization in United States history.

Davin, Eric Leif

Over the course of the s, the political center almost disappeared as the Democratic New Deal became the litmus test of class, with blue collar workers providing its bedrock of support while white collar workers and those in the upper-income levels opposed it. By the class cleavage in American politics was as pronounced as in many of the Western European countries-such as France, Italy, Germany, or Britain-with which we usually associate class politics.

Working people created a new America in the s and s which was a fundamental departure from the feudalistic and hierarchical America that existed before. They won the political rights of American citizenship which had been previously denied them. They democratized labor-capital relations and gained more economic security than they had ever known. They obtained more economic opportunity for them and their children than they had ever known and they created a respect for ethnic workers, which had not previously existed.

Crucible of Freedom (eBook)

This is a book to be read and reckoned with by anyone who seeks to understand the nature of the political transformation that swept across industrial America during the Great Depression and World War II. Eric Leif Davin deserves our gratitude for having created such a vivid portrait of what E. Thompson might have called Steel Valley's 'working-class presence' at a moment when workers helped reshape the direction of both their region's and their nation's politics.

Focusing on steelworkers in Pittsburgh between and , Eric Leif Davin has much to say that will strike chords among New Deal labor historians.

Davin makes a strong case for the salience of class and class consciousness for understanding the transformation of labor relations and politics during the New Deal era, and he does a good job placing this regional study within a broader national framework. His work speaks to all historians interested in the twentieth-century United States Davin has crafted an important account of working-class agency in the New Deal era that reminds us of what was truly radical and empowering about that period.
