Editorial Reviews

Review

FDR and the Spanish Civil War is an important, well documented study. It will not only prompt a rethinking of how the Spanish Civil War shaped and reflected Franklin D. Roosevelt’s policies; it will become the standard book on the subject.”—Warren F. Kimball, author of The Juggler: Franklin Roosevelt as Wartime Statesman


“Based on exhaustive research, this highly readable book is an important contribution to an important subject. Dominic Tierney subtly analyzes FDR’s juggling of international and electoral pressures to explain the contradictions and dramatic changes in his passage from isolationism to bitter regret about American abandonment of the Spanish Republic.”—Paul Preston, author of The Spanish Civil War: Reaction, Revolution, and Revenge


“[N]uanced. . . . Tierney provides a long overdue update on this subject. . . . Even for most readers who know the outcome of this story, Tierney’s account manages to be suspenseful.”
(Soledad Fox, Journal of Contemporary History)

“Tierney makes a solid and important argument about the Spanish war as an important experience in the development of US foreign policy on the continent prior to the Second World War.”
(David A. Messenger, The International History Review)

“Tierney makes a valuable and timely contribution to the literature on the era of Roosevelt by providing a focused and dedicated study on the thirty-second president and the Spanish Civil War . . . . [T]his is a most impressive book.”
(J. Simon Rofe, Diplomacy and Statecraft)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book on Roosevelt's attitude towards the Spanish Civil War, and his inability to stop Texaco and other corporations from providing indispensable assistance to the growth of fascism in pre-World War II Europe.
