Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Serge Ricard and his collaborators in this magnificent enterprise have managed to convey both the complexity of the person and the appeal of the leader... conveyed in essays which manage to blend critical scholarship with clarity of expression.”  (The Journal of Transatlantic Studies, December 2013)

“It is solidly made and will last. It comes as a hardback and, somewhat more cheaply, as an e-book.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 December 2012)

"The Blackwell Companions to American History series provides essential and authoritative overviews of the scholarship that has shaped our present understanding of the American past." (Expofairs.com, 3 December 2011)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“An impressive collection of essays that provides up-to-date information on how historians have studied and interpreted the manifold aspects of Theodore Roosevelt’s life and career. The twentieth century may, or may not, have been ‘a Rooseveltian century,’ as the editor suggests, but it is clear from these essays that Theodore Roosevelt was the first U.S. leader who tried to understand and respond systematically to an increasingly diversified world, politically, socially, and culturally.” – Akira Iriye, Harvard University

“Theodore Roosevelt occupies an iconic position in American history.  Serge Ricard has assembled a distinguished international group of scholars who provide an insightful, comprehensive, and accessible view of TR the person, the political leader, and president.”
George Edwards, George and Julia Blucher Jordan Chair in Presidential Studies, Texas A&M University

“Serge Ricard’s splendid Companion to Theodore Roosevelt is one of the most comprehensive assessments of the personality and policies of this complex American chief executive to appear in print. The international group of contributors and the stunning breadth of its coverage should appeal to the specialist in American history as well as to the general reader.” – William R. Keylor, Boston University, author of The Twentieth Century and Beyond: An International History since 1900
