Book Cover
A Companion to Franklin D. Roosevelt

The only United States president elected to four terms of office, Franklin Delano Roosevelt shepherded the nation through its most tumultuous period since the Civil War. A Companion to Franklin D. Roosevelt presents a collection of historiographical essays by leading FDR scholars that provides a comprehensive review of the scholarship on key elements of this central figure during the two critical events that shaped the modern world: the Great Depression and World War II.

The essays cover all aspects of FDR's life and times, including his political, military, and economic decisions, fully discussing the scholarship to date as well as sketching out areas in need of further research. Themes and topics range from Roosevelt's health, relationships, Supreme Court packing, to New Deal policies, institutional issues, and international relations. A Companion to Franklin D. Roosevelt is the most comprehensive and authoritative source on a twentieth-century icon whose optimism and vitality led America from the nadir of the worst depression in world history to the brink of victory over Germany and Japan.
