An understanding of American politics in the 1950s begins with the story of the 1930s and 1940s and the impact of the Great Depression, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the New Deal, World War II, and the outbreak of the Cold War on the two national political parties. The upheaval of the 1930s and 1940s began with the onset of the Great Depression. Among the political institutions that felt its sting was the Republican Party.
