Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd American president. Roosevelt’s social programs reinvented the role of government in Americans' lives, while his presidency during World War II established the United States' leadership on the world stage. FDR, as he was often called, led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, and greatly expanding the powers of the federal government through a series of programs and reforms known as the New Deal. Stricken with polio in 1921, Roosevelt spent much of his adult life in a wheelchair. Early Life and Education. Roosevelt was born on January 30, 1882, in Hyde Park, New York.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt stands astride American history like a colossus, having pulled the nation out of the Great Depression and led it to victory in the Second World Wa. Franklin Delano Roosevelt―recently reelected to a second term as president―sat in the Oval Office and contemplated two possibilities: the rule of fascism overseas, and a third term. Now, in Rightful Heritage, Brinkley turns his attention to the other indefatigable environmental leader-Teddy’s distant cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, chronicling his essential yet under-sung legacy as the founder of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and premier protector of America’s public lands.

The life of the thirty-second President who was elected to that office four consecutive times.

When I was growing up in the 1960's and 1970's, every public and school library had a set of the titles in the American Heritage Junior Library range. Those of us who discovered these books were truly fortunate. These titles were literate, informed, and included excellent artwork and photography. Additionally, they were written by some of the best authors of the time, men like Stephen Sears, who penned several titles. Besides the books in this group, American Heritage also published a group of books in the "Horizon Caravel" series, which were more international in flavor.

"Franklin Roosevelt," published in 1970, is good but not one of my favorite books in the group. At the time I was growing up, FDR had assumed a near- religious, almost mythical status among many Americans who grew up in the Depression/World War II era. For these individuals, it was taken for granted that FDR had personally saved the country, and he was looked upon as a quasi-deity. The tone of this book reflects that attitude, and it is very plain that the author regarded Roosevelt as a great savior devoid of any faults. The only Presidents to achieve anywhere near the exalted status which Roosevelt enjoyed were Washington and Lincoln.

In the years since, historians have taken a more balanced stance toward his presidency. There is no doubt that FDR did more to change the role of government in America than any President, before or since, and certainly did much help those most affected by the depression. Besides painting an extremely favorable picture of President Roosevelt, this book's author is unkind, to say the least, toward those who opposed any of his policies. In a way, this title serves a role beyond being a biography. It reflects the the thinking of so many Americans who came to regard Roosevelt as the man who saved the country. It will be important for future historians to understand this phenomenon.

This volume is a bit more difficult to find than some of the other books in the Junior Library series, but it is well worth tracking down if you are collecting a set. I would only recommend that the potential reader, especially young readers, to keep in mind that not everyone agrees that Roosevelt was the perfect President as he is portrayed here. In any case, it is an enjoyable read, and I would hate to discourage youngsters who might be so inclined to put down their video games and read about this interesting and vastly important man.

Most of us who remember the American Heritage Junior Library from our youths have fond memories of it and this volume on "Franklin Delano Roosevelt" by Wilson Sullivan shows why. Opposite the Foreword there is a page showing postage stamps commemorating FDR from Monaco, El Salvador, and the United States; Roosevelt was a dedicated philatelist from his youth. This represents the sort of details that are found through this informative volume. Just in terms of the photographs you have FDR playing Uncle Bopaddy in his senior year at Groton, about to lift himself out of a car in 1932, the edited first page of his first inaugural address, a bottle celebrating the TVA with Roosevelt's head as the cork, and FDR driving around Fala, the infamous Scotch terrier. There are also the most famous pictures of FDR's political career: standing on a street talking with a voter during the Depression and the tear stained face of Chief Petty Officer Graham Jackson playing "Going Home" after the President's death. Add to this a few choice cartoons about both Franklin (A young boy write "ROOSEVELT" on the sidewalk and his sister reports "Mother, Wilfred wrote a bad word") and Eleanor (one amazed miner deep underground tells the other, "For gosh sakes, here comes Mrs. Roosevelt).

The Editors of "American Heritage" magazine set the tone for this look at FDR by making it clear that it was not until the summer of 1921 when Roosevelt was struck down by polio that his character turned into that of a great politician (and political leader, since those are not the same thing). The key quote is Roosevelt's political philosophy that "Government has a final responsibility for the well-being of its citizenship." Within that context Sullivan tells the story of FDR's life and political career as emphasizing action rather than talk and experimentation rather that theory, both of which are exemplified as the guiding principles behind his legislative New Deal. Within these pages Sullivan tries to reconcile the scion of Hyde Park with the diplomat of Casablanca, Teheran, and Yalta. However, it must be noted that you will not find any mention of Lucy Mercer, the woman with whom FDR had an affair in 1918 and in whose presence he died in 1945. Still, it is easy to see what that sort of detail would not be deemed important in a juvenile biography published in 1970; today, such things have considerably more salience, as I am sure most young students are painfully aware.

One advantage of this volume is that it focuses primarily on Roosevelt's years in the White House. The first chapter deals with his life before being stricken with polio while FDR is elected president by the end of the second. Chapters are then devoted to the New Deal, FDR's reinvention of government, his efforts to prepare the nation for World War II, and his tenure as Commander in Chief for most of the war. Young readers will get a sense of exactly why FDR was the first 20th century President to get his visage on a coin and understand why the Republicans passed through a Constitutional Amendment limiting Presidents to two terms of office as soon as they controlled Congress. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the most significant President of the 20th century (Richard Nixon comes in second because of detente and Watergate) and this book certainly helps you appreciate that particular judgment of history.
