The New Imperative
NY, Macmillan, 1935. A commentary on the New Deal and the question of whether it fundamentally revised the place of government in the lives of the citizens of a democracy. He argues that it did, but that the change came not from Roosevelt but earlier, from Herbert Hoover's attempt to take on the fallout from the stock market crash of 1929. Offsetting to endpages; near fine in a very good, spine-tanned dust jacket. No copies online, and Lippmann's Wikipedia page mentions this title as a "pamphlet" with no mention of a hardcover edition. [#034881] $250
