It reached the height of its influence during the New Deal and World War II as it helped implement modern liberal policies in America's farming sector, attempting to counteract the harsh effects of modern industrialism on the rural economy.

Sociology in Government offers the first detailed historical account and systematic documentation of this remarkable federal office."--BOOK JACKET." ;
