From Library Journal: The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), passed in 1938 in the twilight of the New Deal, is among the most significant legacies of Franklin Roosevelt's presidency. Yet the era's voluminous literature has paid scant attention to the act, which empowered the federal government to fix a minimum wage and a maximum work week and to set limitations on child labor. Paulsen (emeritus, Arizona State Univ.) has written the first major study of the FLSA. Although he writes in a clear, straightforward manner, in focus and density he makes few concessions to nonspecialists, mapping in small scale the tortuous political road to the FLSA's passage. While few readers will complete the trip, those interested in a detailed view of the factional divisions that bear on this piece of legislation?Republican and Democrat, Northern and Southern, urban and rural, employers and workers, craft and industrial labor?will read the book with profit and may wonder that important legislation ever gets passed. For strong collections in U.S. public policy and labor history.?Robert F. Nardini, North Chichester, N.H.
