An Opportunity Lost: The Truman Administration And the Farm Policy Debate.

Virgil W. Dean, "An Opportunity Lost: The Truman Administration And the Farm Policy Debate".
Publisher: University of Missouri Press | ISBN: 0826216501 | 2006 edition | PDF | 280 Pages | 1.25 MB

Harry Truman's "Fair Deal" domestic policy agenda promised to continue Roosevelt's "New Deal" and, with some modification for postwar realities, to guide America into a new age of peace and prosperity. Agricultural policy was a cornerstone of this program, as it attempted to transform the farm program from the parity price foundation crafted by FDR to one based on income support through direct payment to farmers. Virgil W. Dean takes a new look at the much-heralded "Brannan Plan" to examine in detail the farm policy dilemma and Truman's quest for a long-range agricultural program that would confront the problems of an industry in the midst of a technological revolution - one in which regional and commodity-based differences only served to complicate any solution.

AMERICAN EPIC, a film series produced by Allison McGourty, Duke Erikson and Director Bernard MacMahon, explores the pivotal recording journeys at the height of the Roaring Twenties, when music scouts armed with cutting-edge recording technology captured the breadth of American music and discovered the artists that would shape our world. The recordings they made of all the ethnic groups of America democratized the nation and gave a voice to everyone. Country singers in the Appalachians, Blues guitarists in the Mississippi Delta, Gospel preachers across the south, Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana, Tejano groups from the Texas Mexico border, Native American drummers in Arizona, and Hawaiian musicians were all recorded. It was the first time America heard itself.
