    1. The first volume of The Age of Roosevelt is really a masterpiece the second, which I browsed for 3 years, did not grab me So I turned the 3rd volume, and read about 1 3 of it section on radicalism Left and Right during 1935 1936 It is a somewhat breezy review of a great many key figures interesting, but not intense Schlesinger, writing in 1960, has a very imperfect understanding of fascism imo , and sees figures like Huey Long and Coughlin as left populists in part certainly, they were allied wi [...]
