Synopsis

The New Deal as a Triumph of Social Work concerns the 'hand' the New Deal plays from the perspective of early American History in which government and business cooperation is assumed and economic rights are addressed collectively whereas political rights are considered individually. The New Deal reconfigures this 'ratio' of rights by folding 'social work' into the aims of government. Miller describes the vital part Frances Perkins and her personal history play in this development.

Stephen Paul Miller is Professor of English at St. John's University, USA. He is author of several books including The Seventies Now: Culture as Surveillance (1999) and several poetry books including There's Only One God and You're Not It (2011) and Being with a Bullet (2007). He is co-editor of Radical Poetics and Secular Jewish Culture (2009), and The Scene of My Selves: New Work on New York School Poets (2001). Miller was a Senior Fulbright Scholar at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.
