Overview

Since the original publication of this classic book in 1979, Roosevelt's foreign policy has come under attack on three main points: Was Roosevelt responsible for the confrontation with Japan that led to the attack at Pearl Harbor? Did Roosevelt "give away" Eastern Europe to Stalin and the U.S.S.R. at Yalta? And, most significantly, did Roosevelt abandon Europe's Jews to the Holocaust, making no direct effort to aid them?

In a new Afterword to his definitive history, Dallek vigorously and brilliantly defends Roosevelt's policy. He emphasizes how Roosevelt operated as a master politician in maintaining a national consensus for his foreign policy throughout his presidency and how he brilliantly achieved his policy and military goals.

"A careful, balanced, intellignet work which...is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the man and his foreign jpolicies."---The Historian

    In Depth Analysis

    Robert Dallek puts to rest with facts and exhaustive research the myths surrounding FDR's leadership of our country in regards to his foreign policy. His even handed narrative will show that FDR believed his power came from the American people and he led and made decisions accordingly. This book could well be the finale on FDR and his foreign policy vision.
