About this title

Synopsis:

Assesses the impact of political and economic policies on one of the regions hit hardest by the Great Depression. Argues that the 1932 Tax Limitation Amendment weakened country and municipal governments and inhibited West Virginia's participation in New Deal programs, compares two model of local response to relief programs, looks at the social effects of the depression, and evaluates the efforts to help farmers and the successes of the labor movement. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

In this paperback edition of An Appalachian New Deal: West Virginia in the Great Depression, Jerry Bruce Thomas examines the economic and social conditions of the state of West Virginia before, during, and after the Great Depression. Thomas’s exploration of personal papers by leading political and social figures, newspapers, and the published and unpublished records of federal, state, local, and private agencies, traces a region’s response to an economic depression and a presidential stimulus program. This dissection of federal and state policies implemented under Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal program reveals the impact of poverty upon political, gender, race, and familial relations within the Mountain State—and the entire country. Through An Appalachian New Deal, Thomas documents the stories of ordinary citizens who survived a period of economic crisis and echoes a message from our nation’s past to a new generation enduring financial hardship and uncertainty.
