But in 1936, the components held together to bring Roosevelt what was one of the most lopsided triumphs in the long history of American presidential elections. In retail, for example, most of the Democratic contributors were affiliated with the Jewish-owned Macy's or Gimbels.

The book's topic, campaign finance in the 1936 presidential election, should generate broad interest among social scientists who seek to understand the New Deal. Because the 1936 election demonstrated such remarkable support for the New Dealers, a careful study of who gave financial support to whom in that election can provide insight into the nature of the New Deal coalition and the major policy changes that it brought.

In New Deal Fat Cats, Michael Webber offers a fresh perspective on the New Deal. The author analyzes the role of various segments of society in party politics during the political change brought on by the Great Depression. Webber uses analysis of campaign contribution as a major method of evaluating the 1936 presidential election. Today’s readers may be surprised at the statistical breakdown of the group that reelected FDR. These groups ranged from southern Democrats and organized labor, to Catholics, Jews, and small businesses. A considerable portion of the author’s analysis rests on interpretive literature about the politics of the New Deal and specifically about the role of business in the construction of those politics. The emphasis of this work is on the coalition of what seem to be disparate elements in society suggesting that large and monolithic power blocks are not necessarily the road to major political change in U.S. society. The reader will begin to sense the seemingly divisive pressures from different groups that made the New Deal not only a paradox, but an effective social reality.
