Eleanor Roosevelt is the most important woman in American political history, and in this definitive biography, Blanche Wiesen Cook recreates her in all of her roles -- as a visionary, an activist, a political wife, and a woman far more independent than we knew.

No other First Lady has had a greater influence in the course of democracy in this century, and no other book about Eleanor Roosevelt captures the complexity of her character - her wit, her passion, her boldness, and her commitment to greater dignity and security for all women and men.

    " I was surprised at how much I was able to learn about the Roosevelt administration and policies. Eleanor was so involved in it all and this book focused in detail on her involvement in shaping the new deal policies - but also on ER's own socail policy interests. "

    " Both Volumes I & II are interesting in-depth information about this very fascinating and complex person. It describes her childhood, her marriage, her friends, and the many things that she accomplished. She was involved in more than any other first lady and opened doors in her own way. She continued her work after her husband's death both politically and personally. "
