Both scholars cover the whole of FDR's foreign policies in a concise yet nuanced fashion, they present intellectually consistent arguments that gibe with their own previous scholarship, and they bring authority to their different perspectives with objectivity and without any 'Cross-Fire' hype. (Garry Clifford, University of Connecticut)
Among our best, and most provocative scholars who are writing on the FDR years, Justus Doenecke and Mark Stoler are also distinguished teachers. In this book their scholarship and teaching skills mesh to provide alternative overviews of Roosevelt―accompanied by well-chosen, revealing documents―that will trigger debates inside and outside of the classroom. (Walter LaFeber)
Opens up the issues and sources for one of the critical periods of 20th-century history in a novel, interesting, and useful way. (David Reynolds, Cambridge University, author of From Munich to Pearl Harbor)
In this provocative volume, two distinguished historians reappraise Franklin Roosevelt's highly controversial foreign policies from divergent perspectives. Roosevelt's record, they agree, was neither black nor white but mottled. But how mottled, and why, and compared to what alternatives? Roosevelt's defenders and detractors―and the still uncommitted―will profit from pondering the differing answers that Doenecke and Stoler offer. (George H. Nash, author of The Life of Herbert Hoover)
Debating Frankline D. Roosevelt's Foreign Policies illustrates how events and policies are open to differing interpretations. As a result, it is an outstanding book for those embarking on the study of history in general and U.S. diplomatic history in particular. (Mary Glantz The Journal Of Military History)
There is no better way to become familiar with the fascinating journey made by FDR from inexperienced new president to an architect of victory and of the postwar world. Doenecke and Stoler neatly lay out the arguments over Roosevelt's policies, debates that are surprisingly relevant to the world of the early 21st century. (Warren F. Kimball, Robert Treat Professor of History, Rutgers University)
