This outstanding study is essential reading for anyone who really wants to know and understand Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal. There is massive research, an extensive bibliography, and a profound understanding of the times, events and, though Daniels denies it, of FDR himself to a significant degree. Particularly interesting are the occasions when the author inserts his views directly into the discussion to counter an assertion by another scholar. As to Roosevelt's attitude toward his physical condition and his need to rely on others, Daniels suggests that there is regret and frustration beneath the cheerful exterior. The volume concludes with the events of 1939 and the war coming over the horizon. This reader certainly hopes Daniels will provide - perhaps he is already at work on - a volume on what he might call FDR's war presidency. The author is entitled to be included in the group of historians whose work is indispensable for understanding the New Deal and FDR. Summing Up: Essential. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and experienced scholars. --Paul L. Silver, Johnson State College
