A profusely illustrated, popularly-written volume with original comic art, FDR and the New Deal For Beginners will shed new light upon a story now regaining visibility thanks to the recent economic crisis and prominent reformer, President Obama, in the White House.
The history of the precedent-making FDR administration through the bitter economic depression, with expansive programs empowering artists and working people, comes alive as the grandest social experiment in the history of American democracy. For the first time, the lives of the president, the first lady and the ordinary people of the time will be seen through an inventive comic narrative accompanying historic illustrations and a sympathetic but not uncritical text.

FDR the tactful tightrope walking unifier was a reason United States muddled through the Great Depression without going fascist or Communist.
Graphic novel short & easily digestible for teenagers & above.
His fellow oligarchs hated him on socialist ideas & their power blunted.
Pro-communists deferred revolution on can't get you they want but get what they need (food on the table, gainful employment, still have a home) & not what you need.
Only symbolic wins on minorities thanks to Southern Democratic supporters pushback.
Huh. Harvey Pekar recollection in epilogue gave a modern perspective.
