The New Deal in Old Rome: How Government in the Ancient World Tried to Deal with Modern Problems
by Haskell, H. J.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1947. Second edition, revised. Hardcover. VG+ (DJ slightly aged along spine; otherwise only lightly aged overall.). Gray cloth, bream and blue and burgundy dust jacket, 258, xi pp., no illus. An updated and revised edition of the 1939 book. "This book is neither a criticism nor a defence of the New Deal. It is an attempt to provide an objective survey of instances of government intervention in the ancient world. Many of these were so like experiments tried in the United States in recent years that they may fairly be classed as New Deal measures. I have tried to show what these experiments were, why they were tried, and how they worked. Making allowance for the differences between ancient and modern society, I have ventured to call attention to certain warning signals from the past." (preface).
