Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
This four-disc set, a companion piece to Republicans, offers an in-depth look at the history of the Democratic Party through profiles of its greatest figures. FDR consists of two discs devoted to the saga of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a president who inspired both devotion and hatred as he led his country through the Great Depression and World War II. Starting with the rise of patriarch Joseph Kennedy, The Kennedys chronicles America's most famous family, focusing on the tumultuous and ultimately tragic careers of John, Robert and Edward Kennedy. LBJ looks at JFK's successor, the charismatic and controversial Lyndon Baines Johnson, a president whose handling of the Vietnam War ended up turning the nation against him. Using combinations of rare archival footage, home movies, and interviews with family, friends, colleagues and historians, The Democrats paints fascinating portraits of these complex and endlessly compelling politicians.
