New Deal Archaeology Book
Bernard K. Means, who teaches anthropology at Virginia Commonwealth University, has edited (and contributed to) a new book: "Shovel Ready: Archaeology and Roosevelt's New Deal for America."
You can find information about the book on this University Alabama Press web page: http://www.uapress.ua.edu/product/Shovel-Ready,5507.aspx
Hopefully, one day, there will be a book about every type of New Deal project, to counter the arguments that government spending is wasteful and the unemployed are lazy good-for-nothings.
