9780252073632: Bridgeport's Socialist New Deal, 1915-36 (Working Class in American History)

In November 1933, the Socialist Party of Bridgeport, Connecticut won a stunning victory in the municipal election, putting slate roofer Jasper McLevy in the mayor's seat. This book probes the factors that led to this electoral victory, uncovering a legacy of activist unionism, and business manipulation of local politics and taxes.

From the Inside Flap:

"In this impressive new study of Bridgeport, Connecticut, from World War I through the Great Depression, Cecelia Bucki directs our attention to where we haven't looked before, or at least not for a long time: to politics at the local rather than the national level, to members of the AFL rather than the CIO, and to the Socialist Party rather than the New Deal Democrats. Under her skillful guidance, the exceptional case of Socialist Bridgeport sheds new light on the entire New Deal Era." -- Lizabeth Cohen, author of Making a New Deal: Industrial Workers in Chicago, 1919-1939

"Bridgeport was one of those American cities governed for many years by a Socialist mayor. In this meticulous study, Cecelia Bucki explains how that happened and what it reveals about New Deal politics. Her achievement is to extract from the relatively singular--Socialist regimes were not, after all, an American commonplace--broadly applicable insights into the embedded, little-understood structures of grassroots mobilization. Bucki's is a book to reckon with. Her findings are going to make life uncomfortable for historians bent on easy generalization about how ethnicity, class interest, and economic crisis intersected to bring forth the New Deal." -- David Brody, author of Steelworkers in America: The Nonunion Era
