The New Deal

- The New Deal The New Deal period has generally - but not unanimously - been seen as a turning point in American politics, with the states relinquishing much of their autonomy, the President acquiring new authority and importance, and the role of government in citizens' lives increasing. The extent to which this was planned by the architect of the New Deal, Franklin D. Roosevelt, has been greatly contested, however.

However, this conception is often a mistake; many of these ideas are simply evolutions of previous and forgotten notions. This means that they were not truly avant-garde but actually just older ideas that changed and developed over the years. Two major political plans of the early 20th century that were considered revolutionary but in reality proved to be very evolutionary were Truman's Fair Deal and the Great Society....   [tags: American History]
