Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too Much Judgment, Not Enough Understanding  Jan 3, 2008
This brief account of the Great Depression of the 1930's is aimed at younger readers. It features a number of photographs and exerpts from contemporary letters and speeches that are effective in conveying a sense of the desperation and despair that were all too common during this era. However, the author often assumes a preachy and sententious tone that is too ready to reduce complex causes and situations to oversimplified judgments of good and evil. To cite one instance, the author claims that during the 1920's, U.S. political and economic leaders did not think it necessary to take on any global responsibilities. This is a gross oversimplification. Already in 1921, The U.S. sponsored an International Naval Limitaion Conference. And later, the plans devised by Dawes and Young were instrumental in stabilizing the German economy during the 1920's. The author seems to be overreacting to the failure of the U.S. to join the League of Nations. But there is much more to the issue, and even if the U.S. had joined the league, it is unlikely that the Depression and its political effects, such as the rise of Nazism, could have been averted.
Similar concerns apply to author's tendency to reduce complex economic and political causes to the greed or mendacity of certain individuals or classes.
