"In war and in peace, the twentieth century was the Roosevelt century. From Theodore Roosevelt's Square Deal and battles with the plutocrats of the Gilded Age, to Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal and wartime leadership, to Eleanor Roosevelt's pivotal work on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and vital role in the Civil Rights movement, their crusades dramatically reshaped the political and moral landscape of our nation." "In The Three Roosevelts, author James MacGregor Burns and historian Susan Dunn illuminate the intertwining lives of these leaders, who emerged from the closed society of New York's wealthy Knickerbocker elite to become America's most powerful advocates for social and economic justice. As Burns and Dunn follow the evolution of the Roosevelt political philosophy, they explore how Theodore's example of dynamic leadership would inspire the careers of his distant cousin Franklin and his niece Eleanor."--BOOK JACKET.
