Summary
In an era of great national divisiveness, there could not be a more timely biography of one of our greatest presidents than one focusing on his unparalleled ability as a uniter and consensus maker. Robert Dallek takes a fresh look at compelling questions that have attracted all FDR's biographers. How did a man who came from so privileged a background become one of the greatest champions of the country's needy? And how did someone never recognized for his intellect foster revolutionary changes in the country's institutions and foreign relations?
