Overview

A candid and insightful look at an era and a life through the eyes of one of the most remarkable Americans of the twentieth century

The long and eventful life of Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) was full of rich experiences and courageous actions. The niece of Theodore Roosevelt, she married a Columbia University law student named Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who gradually ascended in the world of New York politics to reach the presidency in 1932. Throughout his three terms, Eleanor Roosevelt was not only intimately involved in FDR's personal and political life but also led women's organizations and youth movements, and fought for consumer welfare, civil rights, and better housing standards. During World War II she traveled with her husband to meet leaders of many powerful nations; after his death in 1945 she worked as a UN delegate, chairman of the Commission on Human Rights, newspaper columnist, Democratic Party activist, and diplomat, and was a world traveler. By the end of her life, Eleanor Roosevelt was recognized around the world for her fortitude and commitment to the ideals of liberty and human rights. Her autobiography constitutes a self-portrait no biography can match for its candor and liveliness, wisdom, tolerance, and breadth of view—a self-portrait of one of the greatest American humanitarians of our time.

With 8 pages of black-and-white photographs and an afterword by Eleanor Roosevelt's granddaughter

    Eleanor Roosevelt

    This intriguing book has all the facts about Eleanor Roosevelt, but is shorter than the biography by Blanche Weisen Cook. She starts from her childhood and throughtout most of her life. Not only is this book about her and her life but her family's life was well. It is interesting to read as well as informative on a historical prespective.

    Pretty Good.

    I bought this book because I was writing a research paper on ER's contribution to American History. I haven't finished it yet but I've learned a lot about her and the life she led. It is interiesting, but not riveting so it might take a while to read. It's funny at times,and also reflective.

    highly recommended

    I'm not a history buff, nor did I know much of anything about the Roosevelt's before reading this book. I wanted to know more about the great humanitarian I read so many essays on. The book is long but captivating. And I appreciate a book that can last me over a week. Definitly a great autobiography by a great woman!!! Buy it now!
