Summary
"'The Bitter Years' was a seminal exhibition curated by Edward Steichen in 1962 at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The show featured 208 images by photographers who worked under the aegis of the U.S. Farm Security Administration (FSA) in 1935-41, as part of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal ... No proper catalogue was produced of the exhibition in 1962 so this book provides a unique opportunity to see all the photographs in a structure and sequence that reflected those devised by Steichen for the original show..." --From book jacket
