Historians, politicians, feminists, critics, and reviewers everywhere have praised Blanche Wiesen Cook's monumental biography as the definitive portrait of this towering female figure of the twentieth century. The concluding volume, Eleanor Roosevelt: Volume Three, 1938-1962, will be published in November. Here, in the majestic second volume, Cook takes readers 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 readers of American history.
