"The 1930s are again en vogue. Over the past fifteen years political commentators have repeatedly invoked the decade as a resonant backdrop to current historical events ranging from the financial crash of 2008 and the surge of populist political movements to the apparent crisis of democratic institutions in Europe and elsewhere"-- Provided by publisher.
