Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sprinkled with backroom revelations of the New Deal, this dramatic family saga focuses on three patriarchs, each driven by a sense of destiny. German cigarmaker Lazarus Morgenthau (1815-1897), financially overextended, moved to New York in 1866, where his fortunes plummeted further. His son, Henry (1856-1946), saw his mission as restoring the family to its rightful position. As Wilson's ambassador to Turkey, he supported the Jews in Palestine and heroically rescued Armenians persecuted by the Turks. Henry Jr. (1891-1967), the author's father, was loyal courtier of FDR, secretary of the Treasury and leader of U.S. efforts on behalf of Holocaust survivors. Morgenthau III casts doubt on the alleged Communist associations of his father's Treasury aide Harry Dexter White, whom Whittaker Chambers accused of being a Soviet spy and conspirator. This history of a resilient family includes closeups of FDR, Al Smith, Ike, Eleanor Roosevelt and the author's brother, Manhattan district attorney Robert Morgenthau. Photos. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Insider family chronicles rarely offer the richness and luster with which the reader is rewarded in Mostly Morgenthaus , which is the result of Morgenthau's own voyage of discovery into his family's Bavarian-Jewish history. It follows the fortunes of three Morgenthau generations, focusing on the author's great-grandfather Lazarus, his grandfather Henry Sr., and his father Henry Jr. Previously untapped written and oral sources are used to reveal the family's ``our crowd'' experience and Junior's tremendous influence as a member of Franklin D. Roosevelt's cabinet. This personalized account is both moving and fascinating. As the only recent examination of the Morgenthaus' impact on American history, as an intimate portrait of prominent immigrant society during America's Gilded Age, and as a model for those tracing their cultural roots, this makes good history and is recommended for large public and academic libraries.-- Susan E. Parker, Harvard Law Sch. Lib.
