Product Description
"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days."
--FDR, from his First Inaugural Address

Franklin Delano Roosevelt followed in the footsteps of the political career blazed by his cousin (and uncle by marriage), President Theodore Roosevelt. Beginning with local politics, he went on to serve a stint in Washington, then became governor of New York, and then won the presidency. His was a charisma similar to that of TR, but derived from his Delano side. His sunny disposition carried him through many trials, including disabling paralysis. As president his was a fearsome task, with two principal thrusts restoring hope to an America mired in the Great Depression and leading the nation to victory in the Second World War.

FDR became an American icon. The hundreds of photos in Historic Photos of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, from the collections of the FDR presidential library, portray him throughout his life and career, revealing a presidency marked by the twin struggles for economic recovery and military victory. FDR's life in pictures, published here in striking black and white, captioned and with introductions, is sure to enthrall every reader interested in the biography of this renowned American leader. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A photographic biography of FDR
My parents, who grew up as very poor children in the teeth of the Great Depression, held FDR in high regard.However, they did not share in the general worship of FDR by some of their friends. For my parents' friends FDR was more than a President, even more than a Hero.He was a kind of savior to them who inspired them, provided work to their fathers, and provided food that they were often ashamed to eat.My parents recognized the leadership FDR showed, and were grateful for some of the programs, but the idea that the government could provide everything for everybody seemed absurd to them.

As I grew up and read and began formulating my own ideas, I began to question the orthodox view of FDR held of these friends.I remember at one gathering of my parents' friends, a couple of us teenagers brought up some views that questioned the view of FDR as the savior of the nation.Wow, what a reaction!(Again, not from my parents, but their friends.)Later in life I met families for whom FDR was an unalloyed devil and if you had anything remotely positive to say about FDR it generated a similarly explosive reaction.Interesting stuff.

Regardless of your views of FDR, there is no question that he was the most influential president of the 20th century, even more than Reagan whose dominance seems so great because he was more recent.This very interesting volume provides a couple of hundred photographs of FDR from his boyhood through his funeral.I enjoyed the way the book did not center on his three and a part terms as president, but gave us many photographs that are not commonly seen.It is the private man we see here even more than the man in office (though there are plenty of those, too).They are printed in large format and allow the reader to linger over them and notice very interesting detail.

As usual in this fine series from Turner Publishing, the captions add valuable information about the photograph and the few pages of information that form chapter headings add just enough helpful information without getting in the way of the photographs.

This is an especially nice addition to the library of anyone interested in FDR, American presidents, or general American history.

Editorial Review

Product Description
"No president since the founders has done more to shape the character of American government," notes Alan Brinkley in this magnificent biography of America's thirty-second president. "And no president since Lincoln has served through darker or more difficult times. Roosevelt thrived in crisis. It brought out his greatness, and his guile. It triggered his almost uncanny ability to communicate effectively with people of all kinds. And at times, it helped him excoriate his enemies, and to revel in doing so."
This brilliant, compact biography chronicles Franklin Delano Roosevelt's rise from a childhood of privilege to a presidency that forever changed the face of international diplomacy, the American party system, and the government's role in global and domestic policy. Brinkley, the National Book Award-winning New Deal historian, provides a clear, concise introduction to Roosevelt's sphinx-like character and remarkable achievements. In a vivid narrative packed with telling anecdotes, the book moves swiftly from Roosevelt's youth in upstate New York--characterized by an aristocratic lifestyle of trips to Europe and private tutoring--to his schooling at Harvard, his brief law career, and his initial entry into politics. From there, Brinkley chronicles Roosevelt's rise to the presidency, a position in which FDR remained until death, through an unparalleled three-plus terms in office. Throughout the book, Brinkley elegantly blends FDR's personal life with his professional one, providing a lens into the President's struggles with polio and his somewhat distant relationship with the first lady.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt led the United States through the worst economic crisis in the nation's history and through the greatest and most terrible war ever recorded. His extraordinary legacy remains alive in our own troubled new century as a reminder of what bravery and strong leadership can accomplish. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very insightful Point Of Interest(s), indeed insightful and research in depth, BRAVO!! review by Alex Hin Ting Lam
Professor Alan Brinkley capture my attention with in depth research and supported thoughts! Informing, revealing in the pursuit of his research and study of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The book keeps me wanting to know more and I did read on till the last page in one occasion.

I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Honest and amazingly comprehensive given its length
Short review called for, I think.The author had a very tough assigment:write an under 100 page study of FDR, one of the giants of American life. Include important aspects of his personal history along with the key political events, and add carefully considered commentary where needed.To succeed Brinkley needed to have deep knowledge of both the man and the times, which he clearly does. And he had to know what could be left out without losing the critical parts of the story. In this short volume a great deal of context is absent and a lot of rich detail is missing. But it is difficult to imagine a better 100 page biography than Brinkley's. Critics from the right will say it is a favorable protrait, and it is - in the main. Brinkley believes we were lucky to have FDR in charge during those challenging times. But FDR's faults are discussed. His deceptions and manipulations are examined, for example, as are the potential psychological sources for same. There is a lot here, but hopefully most readers will use it as a launching point to delve deeper. Certainly this book will give them a sense of why that will be time well spent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Splendid and badly-needed concise life and interpretation of FDR
This book is not only badly-needed, but it is a splendid concise life of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and a thoughtful, shrewd, and learned interpretation of his career by one of America's best historians.The prose is admirably lucid and clear, with occasional elegant turns of phrase.It is never dull (I bought it and read it the same day).And it is remarkably judicious, thoughtful, and even-handed.Brinkley effectively conveys just how experimental, pragmatic, political, and sometimes inconsistent and manipulative Roosevelt was, without traducing the man.All great politicians find themselves drifting or plunging into inconsistency and manipulativeness, and FDR was no exception.Brinkley also deals, concisely yet with sure footing and admirable clarity, with such loaded controversies as whether Roosevelt knew that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was imminent (Brinkley's answer is that he knew that an attack was coming somewhere in the Pacific, but that he had no clue that the target was going to be Pearl Harbor).Brinkley is no idolator of FDR, but he also is honest about his fascination with and ultimate admiration for Roosevelt, and he clinches his case in fewer than 100 pages.Highest recommendation.

5-0 out of 5 stars A succinct Roosevelt
What a concept; an insightful and mostly inclusive small book. One that does not level down to a reader, but certainly does fight the bigger is better philosophy. In this busy life it is sometimes overwhelming to be faced with a biography that is huge - this book solves that problem. The statements that do create curiosity can be furthered researched and investigated, such as one that states Roosevelt's struggle to recover from his bout of polio made him more self-centered; little if nothing had been said of Roosevelt's self-center ness before in the pages on his earlier life.
Thirty two pages of the 99 are dedicated to Roosevelt's presidential legislation to lift the nation out of the Great Depression; buthis early years and his politics before are not forgotten. Brinkley even includes the little said quote of Churchill's, when he heard of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; "So we have won after all".
This is indeed an amazingly complete biography that touches on all the important details of Franklin Roosevelt's life. It is a good buy and would be ideal for someone wishing to have a good overview of the well-regarded politician.
