Eleanor Roosevelt is the most important woman in American political history, and in this definitive biography, Blanche Wiesen Cook recreates 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 in the course of democracy in this 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 all women and men.More
"This highly readable, well-researched work of feminist scholarship erases the image of the young Eleanor Roosevelt as a long-suffering, repressed wife and presents her as a strong, ever-evolving individual." (Publishers Weekly)
