The New Deal

(p.371) 10. The New Deal
Learned Hand

Gerald Gunther

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Learned Hand's changing attitudes towards the New Deal. Hand was never an uncritical enthusiast of the New Deal, in part because of his concern about the threat to individual liberty inherent in the burgeoning national establishment. His evolving views about the Depression and the New Deal can be seen most vividly in his extensive correspondence with three friends, Bernard Berenson, Walter Lippmann, and Felix Frankfurter, where the distinctiveness of their positions—and Hand's own—emerges clearly.
