The Great Depression...non-revisionist version
If you are interested in the true history of the (non-revisionist) "Great Depression" I recommend The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes.
Amity Shlaes is a senior fellow in economic history at the Council on Foreign Relations and a syndicated columnist at Bloomberg. She has written for the Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal, where she was an editorial board member, as well as for The New Yorker, Fortune, National Review, The New Republic, and Foreign Affairs. Shlaes is the author of The Greedy Hand. She lives in New York.
Read it and you will re-evaluate the supposed "greatness" of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Learn the truth and it will set you free.
