Redeeming the Time: A People's History of the 1920s and the New Deal

From Library Journal:

Begun a decade ago and now complete, this national history closes on the eve of World War II. Smith, as before, gives lay readers a narrative stripped of academic fittings. Ironically, he is best in traditional historical areas like the New Deal, here praised highly. He goes on to embrace all else he finds, from literature to gospel music to foreign policy to medicine. Often the text has a newsreel quality, the segments vivid, shallow, and abrupt. History's tendency, says Smith, "is downward, toward complacency, decadence, obtuseness, and coldness of heart"; but always at work are the redemptive forces he usually finds on the left. At times elevated by passion and wit, the book is weighed down by Smith's ambitious scope. For public libraries. BOMC alternate. Robert F. Nardini, M.L.S., Concord, N.H.
