New Book: “’New Deal’ means being prepared for conflict”

In his book titled, “’New Deal’ means being prepared for conflict,” author Steffen Lehndorff examines what we can learn from the New Deal of the 1930s. The aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic requires urgent social, economic, and environmental reforms. Lehndorff reflects on the New Deal, how it was set in motion by the Roosevelt Administration, and how it can serve as a model for today’s reformers.

The author: Dr. Steffen Lehndorff is a Research Fellow at the Institute for Work, Skills and Training (IAQ), University of Duisburg-Essen.

The book is written primarily for a European audience, but it is also of interest for stateside audiences with an interest in the history of the New Deal and its relevance for the Green New Deal. Find more details about the book here.
