5.0 out of 5 stars Debunking the Myth, April 12, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Roosevelt Myth, 50th Anniversary Edition (Hardcover)
"The Roosevelt Myth" both shocks and educates the reader about the nature and presidency of FDR. The book goes beyond fireside chats to inspire a deeper understanding of the Depression, New Deal programs, and America's involvement in World War II. In blunt, straightforward language, Mr. Flynn strips away the accepted veneer of the president as benevolent champion of the American people to expose a more flawed personality. His well-documented examination of FDR reveals the president's machinations for power and his misuse of that power, how his disinterested ignorance of economics and subsequent economic policies actually sustained the Depression, and his pursuit of personal gain at the expense of personal integrity. Mr. Flynn's message on the character of one of the most venerated icons of American politics is often discomfiting, but well worth reading if you're looking for a clear, honest examination of history.
