Author(s): Robert Dallek
In an era of such great national divisiveness, there could be no 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 from so privileged a background become the greatest presidential champion 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?
