The Coming of the New Deal is the second of Schlesinger's three-volume set about FDR. In it he describes how Roosevelt boosted morale during his first 100 days in office and then assembled an administration that used novel approaches to achieve reform and recovery. It's a very long book and there's endless detail about policy as well as the dynamics between the various players as they tried to advance their agendas. Many parallels between New Deal legislation/policy and Obama's proposals.
