Resumo

Material Covered: Chapter 1 of Conkin's book is a study of Roosevelt's personality and of his political activities during the thirties. The book starts with a quite detailed description of Roosevelt's life as a child, student, husband, father, friend, governor, etc., trying to pinpoint especially those personality traits which would later affect his political career, his policies and the life of the country. The remaining three chapters of the book are dedicated to the analysis of Roosevelt's New Deal programs—their successes and failures, their influence on labor unions, on the political Left and on the Republican Party.
