RODGERS: Kindle Store 﫯 Kindle Ebook Author Daniel T RODGERS ﬡ The title Atlantic Crossings refers to the cross pollination of social thinking between the United States and Europe primarily Britain in the first half of the 20th century Princeton history professor Daniel T Rodgers s extensive narrative shows that while many Americans saw themselves as essentially isolationist, many ideas that influenced their daily lives, such as city planning and concepts of social security, were not homegrown A network of government planners, academics, and concerned citizens communicated back and forth across the Atlantic their correspondence was marked by controversy, and an aversion to non American ideas persists in American social planning to this day Rodgers notes the scuffles over health care reform in the early 1990s as one example Rodgers has assembled a prodigious mountain of facts, and he s written a credible and comprehensive account of how people on both sides of the Atlantic contributed in sometimes surprising ways to the social reforms we consider utterly American Robert McNamaraIt s an ambitious book that attempts to reinterpret even one historical era, let alone twoAand to do so across borders at that Nations lie enmeshed in each other s history, writes Princeton s Rodgers, prefacing his argument that our progressive era and the New Deal were chapters in an age of social politics when the United States was open to overseas influence as never before or since Between 1870 and World War II, a new intensity in market relations, urbanization, and working class grievance struck both Europe and America, leading progressives to import ideas on zoning and city planning, housing and social insurance, agriculture and rural community The resulting logjam of proposals was broken only in the New Deal era, the last historical moment prior to a renewed sense of American exceptionalism If Rodgers, a graceful writer and eclectic researcher, sometimes strains his thesis, the sheer mass of his examples will compel other scholars to assess their own interpretations within his framework For all academic and larger public libraries.ARobert F Nardini, North Chichester, NHCopyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
