587 pages. Softcover. Good condition. BIOGRAPHY. Eleanor Roosevelt is the most important woman in American political history, and in this definitive biography, ten years in the making, Blanche Wiesen Cook re-creates 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 on the course of democracy in the twentieth 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 women and men. Blanche Wiesen Cook's access to new archives, her superb insights, and her respect for her subject contribute a new perspective not just on Eleanor Roosevelt but on the world of politics in which she thrived. Includes an Index. "At last we have a first-rate biography of America's most fascinating and influential political woman. This book is riveting in its compelling insights into Eleanor Roosevelt's life."-Jill Ker Conway (Key Words: Eleanor Roosevelt, First Ladies, Blanche Wiesen Cook, United States Presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Lillian Wald, Marie Souvestre, Sara Delano Roosevelt, Elliott Roosevelt, FDR, Franc es Perkins, Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Robert Moses, Lorena Hickok, Louis McHenry Howe, Feminist Movement, Nancy Cook, Campobello Island, Henry Adams).
