Rate this:
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a statesman whose massive achievements tower over the twentieth century. Elected to an unprecedented four terms in office, his accomplishments in leading the nation through depression and world war resonate to this day. Roosevelt's presidency was one of the most eventful in U.S. history, and he was the first president truly to understand the power of the new mass media, rallying the nation through "fireside chats" on the radio and speeches that were the mainstay of movie-house newsreels. In acute, stylish prose, Roy Jenkins -- who was a prominent British politician as well as a bestselling historian -- tackles all of the complexities and intricacies of Roosevelt's character.
