Heinemann skillfully presents the dramatic opposition between the Byrd organization and the proponents of Roosevelt's New Deal. He explains why Virginia voters paradoxically endorsed both at the polls.

This study is based on extensive research in the records of federal agencies, Virginia newspapers, and letters collections of prominent state politicians. It includes a fascinating survey of Virginians who lived during the Depression. The first substantial examination of Virginia during the thirties, Depression and New Deal in Virginia: The Enduring Dominion contributes to our understanding of an important period in our national history.
