Synopses & Reviews
Black shows how Eleanor Roosevelt, after being freed from the constraints imposed by her role in the White House, eagerly expanded her career and unabashedly challenged both the Democratic party and American liberals to practice what they preach.
-- Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt: A Life
'This vital study reconstructs Eleanor Roosevelt's role as a major power broker from 1945 until her death in 1962....[ Roosevelt's ] principled stand for low-cost and public housing, affirmative action, regulation of corporations, U.S. support for the United Nations--key planks in the liberal agenda under siege today--makes this a timely reassessment.'--Publishers Weekly
