Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Preserver of Spirit and Hope $39.00
Authors: Barbara Bennett Peterson (Oregon State University) 
Book Description:
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the thirty-second president of the United States and served four consecutive terms, the longest presidential administration in American history. His resilience, forbearance, and superb political abilities establish Roosevelt as one of America’s greatest leaders and he has been called the greatest president of the twentieth century for restoring confidence following the onset of the Great Depression and for winning World War II. In both domestic and foreign policy FDR was an improviser rather than an ideologue. Politically skilled from his days as a member of the New York senate and then as the Empire state’s Governor, he was elected to the presidency in 1932, 1936, 1940 and 1944 a testament to how his personal charm and astute New Deal programs resonated with Americans. FDR was truly a national president who became an international leader and did not succumb to regionalism but united the continent. President Roosevelt became the most influential leader in the world in his lifetime. This book will explore the man’s life all the way from his youth to his final days.
