Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0, University of Ulster (Faculty of Arts - American Studies), course: America in the Depression 1929 - 1941, language: English, abstract: Franklin D. Roosevelt's attempt to change the composition of the American Supreme Court can be seen from different perspectives. Some historians depict the Supreme Court debacle as the beginning of the end of the New Deal, whereas 'in later years, Roosevelt [himself], asserted that the court-packing fiasco was one in which he lost the battle but won the war [...]' (Coker, p. 114). In this essay, I will describe the situation which led to his proposal of reorganization, his further proceedings and the reactions to them. I will also analyze the results and the effects which it had on the New Deal during his continuing presidency.
