Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Cordery has supplied the best one-volume introduction to Roosevelt and his fascinating life for today's undergraduates. It has balance, readability, and a sound sense of Roosevelt scholarship. ... On matters relating to Theodore Roosevelt, Cordery is judicious and interesting throughout, and I look forward to seeing the book on your list. It should have wide textbook adoption from the excellent series of which it is a part."

"... (the book) presents a well-realized portrait of Theodore Roosevelt and it builds a convincing case for the thesis that he was not only 'in the vanguard of the modern,' but also a 'maker of the American mind.'"

Booknews
Chronologically following Roosevelt's life through his writings, contemporary writings about him, and secondary historical sources, the author puts forward a view of Roosevelt as a figure that profoundly shaped the concepts and character of the United States. After a review of Roosevelt's youth, education, and political career, chapters turn to more thematic discussions of views on the environment, ethnicity, and women. Annotation c.
