As he assesses the contributions of such figures as Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, the legal and political "fixer" Thomas G. Corcoran, Texas legislators, Sam Rayburn and Lyndon Johnson, and the quintessential New Deal industrialist Henry Kaiser, Schwarz produces a volume that should be required reading for anyone concerned with current American industrial policy. And he does so with a liveliness and depth of insight that make The New Dealers comparable to the best work of Arthur Schlesinger or Robert Caro.
