Franklin D Roosevelt Reviews

'...masterly biography of Franklin D. Roosevelt'

'This book is more digestible that its numerous competitors and would work well on a 20th-century history survey course or in specialist modules dealing with the New Deal era.'

THES, Nicholas Cull, 25th February 2005

'... Patrick Renshaw's study, though equally succinct, is much more substantial... The book is consistently perceptive on FDR's use of power, and deftly interweaves the public and the private.'

London Review of Books, 2 June 2005
