Williams, an Alabama liberal committed to civil rights long before such a position was expedient in the South, became the director of the National Youth Administration where he hired blacks and supported labor unions, public housing, public health, and public education. This biography contributes to our knowledge of the Roosevelt administration and sheds new light on the civil rights movement and the power of right-wing political groups to undermine the democratic process.Originally published in 1983.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
