Coolidge reconsidered …

… CRB--Where are We? A review of Coolidge and the Historians - Claremont Review of Books. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Coolidge and the Historians is not itself a book which provides the reexamination of the change of 1932 we need, but it does clear the path for such a book. In clearing the ground of the predominant misconceptions-in showing that they are, indeed, misconceptions-Silver opens anew the questions about the period that need to be raised if a more adequate account of the New Deal revolution is to be given.
