I picked up this volume and the second one as they looked interesting and I liked the idea of photos to give a little visual to such historic times. What I found was interesting but also a huge dose of historical information. A bit more than I was looking for, hence the long time to read the book.

Eleanor Roosevelt was a complicated woman and a bit of a rebel. Born and raised in Victorian times (1884) with Victorian morals she found that she had to change with the turning of the century (1900). Having lived with negative criticism the majority of her life, the changes brought with the new century gave her the chance to become who she really was and be involved in what she felt were important issues and what she had a passion for.

She lived two lives - her public and her personal - and she strove to keep them completely separate, especially keeping her private life out of the public eye. This book gives a view of both worlds.

Blanche Wiesen Cook has done an excellent job of providing sources for her information and giving background on such a complicated person and time. I appreciate this as it gives me a more complete picture of the person and time.

If you are big on historical biographies this will be great. Filled with names, events, dates and more of what was going on in the world between 1884 and 1933. It takes you from Eleanor's childhood to FDR's election to President. ( )

Volume 1 of this 3 part biography covers ER from birth up through the 1932 election victory. I love this marvelous woman and was thrilled to know so much more about her. The author does not shy away from ER's personal problem with her mother-in-law and with her unfaithful husband; she tells of the importance of ER's relationships with the women in her life and with bodyguard Earl Miller. All-in-all, a wonderful biography. ( )

From the dust jacket: "Eleanor Roosevelt is the most important woman in American political history, and in this definitive biography, ten years in the making, [the author] re-creates her in all of her roles--as a visionary, an activist, a political wife, and a woman, far more independent than we knew. No other First Lady has had a greater influence on the course of democracy in this century, and no other book about Eleanor Roosevelt captures the complexity of her character--her wit, her passion, her boldness, and her commitment to greater dignity and security for all women and men.

"Born into the American aristocracy and into a family ravaged by alcoholism and self-destruction, Eleanor Roosevelt learned, rather than inherited, her progressive views. 'Education ends only with death,' she said, and her life bears that out." This book has thorough notes and a comprehensive index.

Celebrated by feminists, historians, politicians, and reviewers everywhere, Blanche Wiesen Cook's Eleanor Roosevelt presents an unprecedented portrait of the towering female figure of the twentieth century. The second volume plunges into the White House years and the Great Depression, the time when Eleanor exerted enormous influence over the course of the country. In the thirties, Eleanor becomes even more surprising and multifaceted. A loyal wife,... ( )

What a fascinating woman was Eleanor Roosevelt! Blanche Wiesen Cook's excellent biography (to which I would have given five stars had the omission of source for a rather disturbing quotation not made me question her research) allows ER to live on the page and often to speak for herself. For the most part, Cook presents the relevant material and allows the reader to draw her own conclusions.
ER was a daughter of the Oyster Bay Roosevelts who married a son of the Hyde Park Roosevelts. Her mother was cold to her; her father adored her and she him, but his alcoholism separated him from his family. Taken in by her grandmother after their deaths, she was eventually exposed to a superior teacher who taught her to expand and trust her brilliant mind. Her marriage to FDR was a love match which he betrayed in 1918, from which time ER learned to shape her life in order to be useful and loved as she was able.
The last two thirds of the book follows her on this quest and necessarily also introduces the ins and outs of the feminist movement of the twenties and the politics of New York and the nation.
ER herself emerges with the vulnerabilities of a child of an alcoholic and with the courage of an indomitable spirit. I'm very much looking forward to volume 2! ( )

The big question before our people today is whether we are to be more material in our thinking, judging administrative success by tis economic results entirely and leaving out all other achievements. History shows that a nation interested primarily in material things invariably is on a downward path. Great wealth has ruined every nation since the day that Cheops laid the corner stone of the Great Pyramid, not because of any inherent wrong in wealth, but because it became the ideal and the idol of the people. Phoenicia, Carthage, Greece, Rome, Spain, all bear witness to this truth.
--Eleanor Roosevelt, 1927
It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who live generously know.
--Eleanor Roosevelt, | April 1939
