Along with the crucial political history, each volume also spotlights vice presidents, first ladies, other family members, scandals, and changes to the White House.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born in 1882. He was elected to the New York State Senate in 1910. President Woodrow Wilson appointed him Assistant Secretary of the Navy. He was nominated as the vice presidential candidate on the James Cox ticket in 1920, but lost overwhelmingly to Warren Harding. In 1921 he was stricken with polio, which left him severely crippled. Not deterred by his handicap he campaigned and was elected governor of New York. He became the leading Democratic candidate for the presidential election of 1932 and handily defeated Herbert Hoover. Roosevelt worked to end the Depression through far-reaching federal programsthat became known as the New Deal.
In 1939 Germany invaded Poland and started the Second World War. Roosevelt brought the U.S. into the war following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. After an unprecedented third reelection, with Harry S. Truman as his vice president, Roosevelt began preparing the nation and the world for the post-war realities. On April 12, 1945, not long before the unconditional surrenders of Germany and Japan, Roosevelt died.
This new volume on the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt will cover:
-- The Great Depression and the New Deal
-- The Supreme Court
-- World War II
-- Global politics
