    One thought on “Franklin D. Roosevelt: Road to the New Deal, 1882-1939

    1. Sherwood Smith

      Copy received from NetGalley.I picked this book hoping that Daniels would have found access to material that would get inside the head of this fascinating man, so important to American (and during WW II) world history. But the author says up front that he is not going to be able to do that as FDR left little of his inner thinking behind--though, as we find out at the end of the volume, he was the first President to donate his papers intact to be archived, instead of destroying most, as had been [...]

      A Detailed History of FDR From His Early Political Career to the Fall of France During WWIIAlthough FDR left no detailed memoir giving the reasons for his political decisions, Daniels has captured his words and used them in the context of events to give us a picture of what FDR thought. The book opens with a brief view of Franklin's early life, but the concentration is on his political career. While I had read several biographies of Roosevelt, this is the first one to go in depth about his early [...]

      Having read the late James Macgregor Burns’ award winning two volume set on FDR (The Lion and the Fox and The Soldier of Freedom) and Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Pulitzer Prize winning No Ordinary Time, I wondered what I would find in Roger Daniels’ first volume of a two-volume set on FDR, Franklin D Roosevelt: Road to the New Deal, 1882-1889 (University of Illinois Press, 2015). What I found was an interesting and insightful study of FDR based on Daniels’ goal of making “Roosevelt’s verb [...]

      My son saw another FDR book under my arm the other day and asked, "How many books on Franklin Roosevelt have you read?!?" The answer, incidentally, is dozens. I think the point of the question was: "What else could you possibly learn about Roosevelt that you don't already know?" Ah, now that's a question asked only by those who haven't yet read dozens of books on FDR. I could read nothing but FDR books for the rest of my life and still not get 100% of the essence of the man. His presidency of tw [...]

    5. Jim Bowen

      Hmmm. I'm not altogether sure about this book, which is about Franklin D. Roosevelt's life up to 1939 (presumeably there'll be another book about the war years). The author uses FDR's public utterances when he wrote the book.It is the public utterances that I think cause the issues I have with the book. Don't get me wrong, it's interesting, and covers the entirity of his life very well, but I feel there wasn't anything here that you couldn't have got from other, shorter, sources, like Roy Jenkin [...]

      An interesting look at FDR. This is the first biography on FDR I have read. I found him to be very intelligent, charismatic and manipulative. FDR comes across as someone who wants to control all aspects of his administrative and found it interesting how he would place some in a position and than place another individual under them to report back to him.

    7. David Lucander

      Daniels' biggest contribution: how did FDR get so much liberal/progressive stuff accomplished in a society that is usually pretty conservative. As a study in political leadership about how to get stuff done, it's something that I wish was out in time for Obama to have read back in 2008.Thoroughly researched and smartly written, this is a biography authored by an eminent historian for other historians. I'd give this more stars for being a hugely important book about a hugely important President, [...]

      If you are looking for a detailed study of Franklin D. Roosevelt's rise to prominence you found it. When I first started reading this book I had but just the most basic knowledge of Roosevelt's political career. After reading this I can tell you that I have learned the origins of many reforms put into place that we still see today.FDR had a charisma that made his physical limitations seem like they were not there. We all know how polio paralyzed him, but Daniels research lets us see how Roosevel [...]

      When it comes to biographies much is written about a select few, even if there is nothing new to say. This is not to say, though, that there can't be anything new to say about a subject, as there are times when new material becomes available, or increasingly when authors can more easily incorporate a wider range of older material into their book. But additional material in itself isn't enough unless the author can mine it for new insights as well. This is what Roger Daniels has done in his new t [...]

      Actually, this book is worth 5/5. I've said ""well-searched" about many non-fiction books I've reviewed, but this was something else. It captured all the information that is possible to find, from how it looks to me.On the other hand, it's hard to read. Apart from being long (560 pages), all those details make it look clustered and after a while of reading, everything starts to blur. Plus, the writing style is not too interesting either, so I think you have to be devoted to the subject to be abl [...]

    11. Amy

      Franklin D Roosevelt: Road to the New Deal, 1882-1939 is an interesting read. I thought it to be well researched but it is quite long for me being over 560 pages long. I learned more about FDR and his New Deal that I hadn't known before. There is a lot of information in the book and was overwhelming at times where at times I had to set it aside for a little while before picking it up back again. I definitely is not a light read but it is an excellent reference book.4 stars.

    12. Christian Holub

      Now that I'm much more attuned to politics, I find myself eager to read a lot of history. Given the problems facing our modern society, I figured it'd be instructive to learn about the last time U.S. government changed society for the better: FDR's New Deal. This book was a great source; super knowledgeable, to-the-point, dispensed with a lot of myths that have grown up around Roosevelt, and (most important of all) does a great job of keeping track of how FDR and the New Deal helped (or, in many [...]
