Racism not only shaped American life in the age of the Great Depression, but Hitler looked fondly at the American South, which was more explicit and more degrading than anything taking place in Germany at the time. Ira Katznelson and David Runciman look at American liberalism when it was at the height of its power in the 1930s and 1940s.
