I had to get this book for a history class, but found ti very enjoyable. It is an interesting read, is broken down so it is easy to understand, and has important aspects traced throughout the entire time period. Definitely worth purchasing and reading for a detailed look at the time period. This concise (200 pages of narrative text) book is a very good overview of American life from our entry into WWI and the election of Franklin Roosevelt. All the basic political narrative history is presented but Hawley's primary focus is on providing a useful interpretation of major aspects of this period of American history.

This concise (200 pages of narrative text) book is a very good overview of American life from our entry into WWI and the election of Franklin Roosevelt. All the basic political narrative history is presented but Hawley's primary focus is on providing a useful interpretation of major aspects of this period of American history. Hawley is particularly interested in rebutting conventional conceptions of this period as an interlude of reaction between the Progressive era and the New Deal. In a convincing argument, Hawley argues that the dominant theme was a particular strain of progressivism which attempted to address major changes in American society through public-private cooperation with government playing the role of facilitator. Herbert Hoover, who Hawley casts in a sympathetic light, is the paradigmatic figure.

Drawing on the experience with government organization of the economy and society during WWI, Hawley suggests that this period was dominated by moderate reformers, like Hoover, who wished a more disciplined and ordered capitalism that addressed major social problems with a minimum of state intervention. The state's role, particularly that of the Federal government, would be that of facilitator, information conduit, and provider of technical expertise. Hoover and those who thought like him, placed considerable emphasis on a technocratic style of government, the importance of associations in industry, and managerial capitalism epitomized by the emerging great corporations that would dampen ruthless competition and practice a more socially responsible form of capitalism. This was set against the background of a considerable post-war boom fed to a great extent by the development of mass production of consumer goods, rising wages, and the flowering of consumer culture in the postwar years. Hawley is also quite good at showing the considerable negative aspects of this period; the nativism, attacks on the labor movement, suppression of leftists, and the persistent and pervasive racism of American life. Nonetheless, there was a significant degree of continuity with the prior Progressive era of reform.

Hawley shows as well that despite the best efforts of these moderate reformers, the approach was not up the task of managing the great challenges that came at the end of the 20s. Hawley's description of the shortcomings of this approach, which occurred both with domestic policy and foreign policy, mirror George Heering's summary of the essential thrust and failure of American foreign policy in the post-WWI ear; "engagement without commitment." Some of these individuals, for example, were aware of the problems of managing the business cycle but felt that modest Federal interventions and encouragement of private action would provide adequate macroeconomic tools. Not only was the Hoover administration incapable of headling off the disasters of the late 20s and early 30s but its responses and policies would prove inadequate after the Great Crash.

In addition to the primary political history and overall interpretation, Hawley provides good summaries of major social, economic, and intellectual trends. As a very nice addition, there is a very good annotated bibliography at the end of the book.
