Not everyone ranks Roosevelt (1882-1945) among the best US presidents, but even critics grant that he was one of the most influential. Historian Coker (Belmont U., Nashville) traces FDR's life from his wealthy Hyde Park, NY childhood through the 32nd president's New Deal and entry into World War II. He also treats controversies over his legacy. On the back cover, 1944 is incorrectly given as the date of his death. This series is intended to meet the needs of high school and public school libraries. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
