Fear Itself free pdf Redefining the traditional understanding of the New Deal, Fear Itself examines this pivotal American era through a sweeping international lens that juxtaposes a struggling democracy with enticing ideologies like Fascism and Communism. Ira Katznelson asserts that, during the 1930s and 1940s, American democracy was rescued yet distorted by a unified band of southern legislators who safeguarded racial segregation as they built a new national state to manage capitalism and assert global power. This study brings to life the politicians and pundits of the time, including Walter Lippmann, who argued that America needed a dose of dictatorship- Mississippi's five-foot-two Senator Theodore Bilbo, who advocated the legal separation of races- and Robert Oppenheimer, who built the atomic bomb yet was undone by the nation's hysteria. Fear Itself is a work vital to understanding America and the world the New Deal made.
