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.

About the Author:

Blanche Wiesen Cook is Distinguished Professor of History at John Jay College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. She is the author of Eleanor Roosevelt: Volume Two: 1933-1938 and Eleanor Roosevelt:Volume Three, 1938-1962, Crystal Eastman on Women and Revolution and The Declassified Eisenhower, and is a former vice-president for research at the American Historical Association.

From AudioFile:

Packed with intriguing facts and detail, this volume focuses on Eleanor Roosevelt's life before her husband's election to the presidency. Cook's voice is level, her pronunciation sometimes odd and her pace a bit irregular. However, her passion for her topic is infectious. She reads the text as though delivering it from a podium and succeeds in getting the listener to lean forward in anticipation. An unusual aspect of this abridgment is that Cook informs the reader about what material is being skipped over. The abridgment retains the logic of the longer text but gives it a stream-of-consciousness flow, making the chapter breaks irrelevant. E.S.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
