"This is a huge and important account of FDR's presidency, based on a prodigious amount of work, largely in the public record, in newspapers, memoirs, and related materials, but with close attention to all of the relevant secondary literature."--Allan M. Winkler, author of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Making of Modern America "A deeply researched and finely crafted biography and history of the greatest American president of the twentieth century. . . . In these times, when FDR's and our parents' and grandparents' memory and legacy are under siege, we should all read Daniels's new work and consider what we need to do today."--Harvey J. Kaye, author of The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great "An unparalleled portrait. Written with verve, refreshingly free of jargon, and deftly weaving acute analysis into clear narrative, it manages both to tell the remarkable story of the most influential president since Lincoln while conducting an ongoing conversation with historians and biographers who have come before."--Max Paul Friedman, author of Rethinking Anti-Americanism: The History of an Exceptional Concept in American Foreign Relations
