Why did I wait so long to read Schlesinger? I keep kicking myself about this lapse. "The Age of Roosevelt" is a must read. All four volumes are well researched, documented and written in a style that rivets the readers attention throughout.

This book - as well as the previous two volumes - are thorough in their review of the national features of the New Deal, with great (perhaps too great) emphasis on the personalities of the New Deal administrators.

The credibility of the series suffers, however, because of its hagiographical undertones, which can be immediately apprehended by the front cover of Volume III. These occasionally bubble up to the surface in the form of patently absurd statements. For instance, on page 575, Schlesinger reviews Roosevelt's preferences for an opponent in the 1936 campaign:

"During 1935 Roosevelt had hoped that Hoover would be his opponent in 1936. This was only partly because he supposed Hoover would make a weak candidate. It was more that he considered Hoover the one Republican leader to possess (in Moley's words) "the massive convictions and intelligence to provide an alternative to the New Deal." With Hoover heading the Republican ticket, the electorate would confront a genuine choice."

The ascription of such high-toned qualities to a candidate in search for a second term is highly questionable, to say the least. Roosevelt wanted Hoover in 1936 because the latter was a political loser with the stain of Depression forever sullying his record. Period. End of sentence. For Schlesinger to suggest that a more dominant consideration for Roosevelt was that Hoover could make the best case against the New Deal is frankly absurd. No politician wishes for the candidate who will offer the most informed and cogent denunciations of his program!

This is one of the more extreme examples of Schlesinger's conceit.

Brilliant writing. A clear and profound examination of FDR's policies and in depth perspectives on the people, situations, and problems of the era. One cannot comprehend Roosevelt without knowing the times in which he lived. No other work written since the 40s compare to Schlesinger's Age Of Roosevelt. For a thorough historical study these three books are incredibly easy reading and interesting. Nothing dry and boring here!
