Colin Gordon received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1990.Review:
"I have assigned several Major Problems over the years and was particularly impressed with this volume. At times I feel that it keeps the "survey" focus when there is time now to delve deeper into issues. Also, even though this is a US history text - I believe that it is important to provide some global/world context for the Depression and World Wars. Students cannot understand the US perspective without situating it in a global context."
"This is an excellent collection of documents and secondary readings addressing, in a thoughtful and thorough manner, one of the most tumultuous periods in US history."
