Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This clear and concise biography of FDR for the Library of American Biography series immerses students in both the personal and political life of one of the twentieth century’s most important figures, during whose presidency the country experienced two of its severest crises: The Great Depression and World War II.

 

Paperback, brief, and inexpensive, each of the titles in the Library of American Biography series focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of American History and national life. In addition, each biography relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times. This text incorporates the latest scholarship and draws upon the longer, far more extensive studies of Roosevelt’s life and times, but makes the story accessible to students in both survey and upper division courses in American history.

Synopsis:

This clear and concise biography of FDR for the Library of American Biography series immerses students in both the personal and political side of one of the Twentieth Century’s most important figures, in a presidency that saw the very worst of the century: The Great Depression and World War II.
