Literature of the New Deal (Note)
Arthur Feiler

Social Research: An International Quarterly

Volume 1, No. 4 (Winter 1934): 518-523

"Through all the literature on the New Deal, but particularly in the popular literature, questions of a more general nature are constantly emerging. Is the New Deal the beginning of a system of planned economy? Does it represent a revolution, if not silent, at least, down to the present, bloodless? Is a putative rugged individualism giving way to bureaucracy and regimentation? Is the animus of the New Dealers communistic or fascist: or if they are unaware of their animus, do their acts accumulate toward communism or fascism? Like the man in the street, most of the writers of the popular books on the New Deal give or suggest answers to these questions with a degree of assurance hardly warranted by the available facts. But Beard and Smith wisely say, 'At best the (recovery) program can only be regarded as the beginning of a transition.' The beginning of a transition—to what? For the time, the question remains open."
