Normalcy and the New Deal


 Background: When the First World War ended, Americans welcomed what   they hoped would be a “return to normalcy.” The decades that followed,   however, are ones which would rarely be described as normal in comparison to   what came before or after. During these decades, a struggle ensued within the   American nation regarding how best to define the nation’s essential   character, as groups like the revived Ku Klux Klan fought a rearguard action   to define nationhood solely in terms of white skin and Protestant religion   against secularists, Catholics, flappers, “New Negroes,” and others who   challenged the traditional order. Immediately thereafter, the New Deal   implemented in response to the Great Depression revolutionized the role of   the federal government in lives of the American people, in ways that many   Americans believed violated the basic tenets of the Constitution—and others   believed were not radical enough. Taken together, the decades from 1920 to   1940 may have transformed the American nation more than any other comparable   time period.
