Description

Historians, politicians, feminists, critics, and reviewers everywhere have praised Blanche Wiesen Cook's monumental Eleanor Roosevelt as the definitive portrait of this towering female figure of the 20th century. Now, in her long-awaited, majestic second volume, Cook takes listeners through the tumultuous era of the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the gathering storms of World War II - the years of the Roosevelts' greatest challenges and finest achievements.

In her remarkably engaging narrative, Cook gives us the complete Eleanor Roosevelt - an adventurous, romantic woman, a devoted wife and mother, and a visionary policymaker and social activist who often took unpopular stands, counter to her husband's policies, especially on issues such as racial justice and women's rights. A biography of scholarship and daring, it is a book for all listeners of American history.

Stimulating, provocative, well-researched

A solid examination of Eleanor Roosevelt's life from the beginning of FDR's first administration until the beginning of his third term. Kept my interest riveted throughout and makes me eager to the next volume.
