I need help creating a thesis and an outline on AMERICAN HISTORY SINCE 1900 Assignment Three. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Detractors who said they could see the wisdom in some of the New Deal initially, but then feel that it went too far later pointed this out. &nbsp. Perkins, Frances. The Roosevelt I Knew. New York: Viking, 1946. Print. Roosevelt showed numerous strengths as a crisis leader. He had the courage to break with the orthodoxy of the day, which is always a difficult thing to do. He took a look at the large picture and realized that letting business attempt to create some sort of Utopia was not going to end the Depression. His willingness to try something new shows good crisis leadership. He was decisive and did not waver from his basic ideals. Roosevelt did show that he could also over-react in a crisis. When the Supreme Court threatened some of his legislation and others declared unconstitutional, he showed poor judgment by trying to pack the Supreme Court with extra justices that were sympathetic to his policies. This type of rash maneuver showed that Roosevelt could create drama that actually made it harder to manage the crisis of the Great Depression. Leuchtenburg, William Edward. The Supreme Court Reborn: the Constitutional Revolution in the Age of Roosevelt. New York: Oxford UP, 1995. Print. The beginning of World War II changed American society in many ways. Economically, the spending on wartime manufacturing ended the Great Depression. Millions of jobs were created. But with many men called away to fight, different groups provided the labor. American teenagers dropped out of school in record numbers to work in factories. Women left the home and childcare responsibilities to work in manufacturing facilities. This greatly expanded economic opportunities for women. Minorities of all sorts were affected by the war as well. Opportunities to serve in the armed forcers were provided to African-Americans and Native Americans. American society changed forever. I am writing to recommend my very good friend Donald “The Donald” Trump as the ultimate businessman of the 19th and 20th century. This is a fitting nomination for a gentleman that in many ways embodies the very essence of the hard-driving entrepreneurship that has helped to make America the great nation that it is. We are all aware that Donald Trump is a household name. But that isn’t why I feel he deserves this award. Plenty of business people have become household names, but none have done so with as much panache and bravado as The Donald. In order to most fully understand why Donald Trump is where he is today, we need to look at where he began. Donald grew-up in Queens and as a result has had a love of New York City his entire life. He followed in his father’s footsteps by working in the family real estate development business. It would be easy for some to say that Donald really didn’t have to work hard for his success. He was handed a business started by his father. Some might say that his story is simply a case of the rich getting richer. This might be true if it wasn’t for the fact that even before Donald joined the family business, he was showing the drive that would get him where he is today. His schooling was adequate at Fordham University but Donald wanted the best. He transferred to the Wharton School of Business at Penn University because he wanted to be in the very best school (Trump).
