Franklin Delano Roosevelt by Roy Jenkins( Book )
21 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Russian and held by 1,904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a statesman whose massive achievements tower over the twentieth century. In a ranking of American presidents, he is rivaled only by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. He was elected to an unprecedented four terms in office, and his accomplishments in leading the nation through depression and world war resonate to this day." "Roosevelt's presidency was one of the most eventful in U.S. history. He took office in the midst of economic crisis: the stock market had crashed, the banking system had collapsed, and millions of Americans were unemployed. Galvanizing the nation with his 1933 inaugural address and with a flurry of legislation in the First Hundred Days, Roosevelt demonstrated an optimism and resolve that garnered quick support for his administration and for the programs that he called the New Deal. And he was the first president truly to understand the power of the new mass media, rallying the nation through "fireside chats" on the radio and speeches that were the mainstay of movie house newsreels." "Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the dominant president of the twentieth century and helped the United States become the most influential world power. Roy Jenkins's assessment enables us to understand how he accomplished this and why he still stands tall in our estimation today."--BOOK JACKET
Gladstone : a biography by Roy Jenkins( Book )
26 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Gladstone was, with Tennyson, Newman, Dickens, Carlyle, and Darwin, one of the stars of nineteenth-century British life. He spent 63 of his 89 years in the House of Commons and was prime minister four times, a unique accomplishment. From his critical role in the formation of the Liberal Party to his preoccupation with the cause of Irish Home Rule, he was a commanding politician and statesman nonpareil. But Gladstone the man was much more: a classical scholar, a wide-ranging author, a vociferous participant in all the great theological debates of the day, a voracious reader, and an avid walker who chopped down trees for recreation. He was also a man obsessed with the idea of his own sinfulness. This full and deep portrait of a complicated man offers a sweeping picture of a tumultuous century in British history.--From publisher description

The British liberal tradition from Gladstone to young Churchill, Asquith and Lloyd George--is Blair their heir? by Roy Jenkins( )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this wide ranging lecture, Lord Roy Jenkins tells the story of the rise and fall of the British Liberal Party under prime ministers Gladstone, Churchill, Asquith, and Lloyd George, and explores the place of current British prime minister Tony Blair in this tradition. Beginning his address with the Liberal Party's birth in London in 1859, Lord Jenkins discusses the relative success of these prime ministers in dealing with social issues, such as religion and suffrage, and aspects of government legislation including education, foreign policy, and the military. He punctuates this analysis with his views on the personalities of these men, recognizing that the character of leaders naturally shapes their leadership. Of William Ewart Gladstone, for example, Lord Jenkins notes that, while he was 'not necessarily the greatest prime minister,' Gladstone was 'certainly the most remarkable specimen of humanity ever to inhabit 10 Downing Street.'"--BOOK JACKET
