Eleanor Roosevelt: V.1

Paperback
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, is the most important woman in American political history, and in this definitive biography, ten years in the making, Blanche Wiesen-Cook re-creates her in all of her roles - as a visionary, an activist, a political wife, and a woman, far more independent than we knew. The author's access to new archives, her insights, and her respect for her subject contribute a new perspective not just on Eleanor Roosevelt but on the world of politics in which she thrived.
