The New Deal was a domestic policy implemented by the newly elected Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in 1933, in response to the Great Depression in America. The main aims of the New Deal were; to give relief towards the unemployed, recover and rebuild the US economy and reform to create a more fair and just society. The New Deal dealt with problems in the US while influencing foreign policy. Being controversial in parts, there was opposition to some of its policies. This essay discusses its impact politically, economically, socially and on foreign policy to see if the New Deal was a turning point in American History.
About a century later, during the 1630’s, the Puritans decided that the best way to reform was to emigrate away from the Church of England. Author David Hall claims “excitement ran high that a new kind of society was being created, a community without “the unclean conversation of the wicked” as Thomas Weld reported to his former parishioners in England.” They called this society “New England” and the puritans were one of the many religious movements able to escape to it, but their historical timing was in no way unique. The Puritans eventually realized that they’re next step was developing their society, shaping its system to fit their beliefs. To control this while still allowing independence, they were going to have to coincide with other fellow Puritan’s opinions. According to David Hall there are 4 major questions you have to ask, whether “Puritanism was coherent, if they were authoritarians, creed and Practice, and finally how relevant and important religion was in people’s changing lives.” These questions were the very basics that lead the Puritan’s to emigrate to a society where they were able to express themselves freely, unfortunately, the religion changed along with a new generation, continuing the
However, these new ideas of education and freedom did not really apply to women or people considered inferior in society. Young white boys were all educated to at least be literate. This differed from white girls who were typically educated at home (Brinkley 92-93). This is because society expected girls to be trained to take care of the children and household chores.
President was a period of frenzied activity in response to the extreme economic crisis that gripped the nation. Roosevelt's program of relief measures, the New Deal, was designed to provide assistance to suffering Americans and to spur the stagnant economy through a series of federal expenditures and initiatives. Among the programs instituted were the creation of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration; the implementation of a social security program for the unemployed and elderly; and the establishment of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and the National Recovery Administration. Roosevelt was reelected in 1936, despite the fact that certain portions of the New Deal, including the National Industrial Recovery Act, were declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. As the Great Depression continued through the 1930s, Roosevelt's attentions were increasingly drawn toward Europe, where the aggression of Nazi Germany could no longer be ignored.
The Treaty Of Versailles The Treaty of Versailles was a 15 part long essay that covered the end of World War I. It was signed on June 28th and included 440 articles, most of which concerned Germany. In this essay, I will go over the effects of the Treaty of Versailles on Germany, as it had a very lasting effect on the people of Germany and set the stage for Hitler’s takeover. The Treaty basically collapsed Germany’s economy and due to the demanding nature of things included in the Treaty (such as reparations), thousands starved. Germany was basically forced to take credit for the entire war, and was forced to pay $33 billion marks in reparations due to Parts VIII and IX of the Treaty (originally, they were supposed to pay $63 billion marks, but the amount was lowered).

The book was released in 1931 and during this time the states were suffering under the great depression. In the book Adams used the term to describe the complex beliefs, religious promises and political and social expectations. The term is difficult to define because “the dream” always brings something individual or personal. The American dream is also something that is constantly changing depending on the society; the dream in the 20’s and 30’s most likely differs from the dream today. Even though the term “the American dream” was first used in 1931 it has been around much longer than that.
Speech Analysis The Great Depression was an extremely traumatizing event in the history of America.

Patriarchy is a social system that has governed both eastern and western cultures throughout history and family was no exception to this system as well. Women were confined to domestic life and without choice had to carry out mundane household chores and were fully responsible for looking after the children. Feminism is a social movement that sought to end this through social reform such as giving women access to education and social positions which were previously unavailable to them because of their gender. Feminism has a positive effect on family life as it can stabilize the family financially, improve the standard of parenting and living environment for children. This will be explained by exploring the advantages dual-income system brings
When the Great Depression first started under President Herbert Hoover, it severely damaged the economy. To respond to this major issue, he created the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, though this change did not do enough to aid struggle Americans, many of whom lived in so-called Hoovervilles, or villages made of cardboard. Following the Election of 1932, New York Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt became president, and almost immediately enacted what he called a “New Deal.” As a part of this, new government agencies like the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Public Works Administration, and the Tennessee Valley Authority were born and began to employ millions of Americans in various government jobs around the nation. FDR also introduced the Emergency Banking Act, which stopped runs on the bank, among other things. These relief and recovery actions only constituted part of the government response, however.

Gross national product was up 34 percent, and unemployment had dropped from 25 percent to 14 percent. But Franklin Roosevelt faced criticism for increased government spending, unbalanced budgets, and what some perceived as moving the country toward socialism. Several New Deal acts were declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Roosevelt retaliated by proposing to "pack" the court with justices more favorable to his reforms. Many in Congress, including some Democrats, rejected the idea.
