Cook recreates Eleanor Roosevelt in all of her roles-as a visionary, activist, political wife, and a woman far more independent than we knew.

The captivating second volume of this Eleanor Roosevelt biography covers 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.

Eleanor Roosevelt, Vol 1: 1884-1933. Eleanor Roosevelt is the most important woman in American political history, and in this definitive biography, Blanche Wiesen Cook recreates her in all of her roles - as a visionary, an activist, a political wife, and a woman far more independent than we knew. No other First Lady has had a greater influence in the course of democracy in this century, and no other book about Eleanor Roosevelt captures the complexity of her character - her wit, her passion, her boldness, and her commitment to greater dignity and security for all women and men. GENRE. Biographies & Memoirs.

Eleanor Roosevelt was born into the privileges and prejudices of American aristocracy and into a family ravaged by alcoholism. She overcame debilitating roots: in her public life, fighting against racism and injustice and advancing the rights of women; and in her private life, forming lasting intimate friendships with some of the great men and women of her time.

Visionary, activist, political wife, woman of surprising independence, Eleanor Roosevelt was the most influential First Lady the United States has ever had and undoubtedly the most important woman in American political history. Born into the American aristocracy and into a family ravaged by alcholism and self-destruction, Eleanor Roosevelt learned, rather than inherited, her progressive views. Though steeped in the sensibilities of the Old South with its prejudices against Blacks and Jews, she became an antiracist activist. She also became an eloquent spokesperson for peace and for women, proclaiming "In the future there will be nothing closed to women because of sex". Blanche Wiesen Cook'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. This book celebrates a woman of wit, passion, unfailing energy and blithe courage, whose life can be seen as a guide for all women and men interested in a just society.

After seeing Ken Burns' new series, The Roosevelts, earlier this fall, I wanted to learn more about Eleanor Roosevelt's transformation from wronged wife to political powerhouse. I was not disappointed.

The author manages to avoid the stilted, scholarly tone I came to loath as a history major, and provides instead a highly-readable biography of a complex woman who carved her own role while supporting and advising her husband. Theirs might not have been a successful marriage in the traditional sense, but make no mistake, Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt were true partners. FDR was incredibly supportive of his wife and her friends. And Eleanor, who was certainly heartbroken when she discovered her husband's infidelity, was an straightforward and loving ally to FDR throughout his career.

I doubt we will see their likes again.

I loved the book. It gave such insight into the woman most people don't equate with all the public work she did. She was interesting and a true American. As the wife of our 4 term president she had good influence in a lot of decision making. she gave her opinion on certain matters and He made the decision. A good book all around and it continues into the second and third editions.

Very comprehensive and detailed yet easy to read, Cook sheds a very real light and relatable light on ER, while staying objective. The huge amount of research that went into this book is apparent, and the fact that it is so comprehensive yet enjoyable to read is a credit to Cook.

Generally I prefer to read fiction, but I was interested in learning about Eleanor Roosevelt, and I was not disappointed by this biography. What an amazing woman! The details about her life helped me feel a little closer to who she was. The only negative comment I have is I was occasionally confused about when things were happening. This is because the author seems to have divided the chapters by theme, as opposed to time periods. I am looking forward to reading Volume II!

What a great read! I am really enjoying this fascinating women and interesting look into the world of 20th century Washington.

Amazing detail. Almost staggering. This has to be the definitive series on ER. No one could find more or work harder at getting it all on paper! Ready for the 3rd volume. If you like US history, know that this covers a whole lot more people than Eleanor Roosevelt.

My wife loved it.
