Details

Eleanor Roosevelt was a woman whose passion and commitment has inspired generations of Americans to seek a decent future for all people. In what theNew York Timescalled the “monumental and inspirational life of Eleanor Roosevelt,” Blanche Weisen Cook gives us the complete Eleanor Roosevelt - an adventurous, romantic woman, a devoted wife and mother, and a visionary policymaker and social activist who often took unpopular stands, counter to her husband's policies, especially on issues such as racial justice and women's rights. A Distinguished Professor of History and Women's Studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, Professor Cook will show how Eleanor Roosevelt was ahead of her time in her unyielding efforts to have American democracy fulfill its promises, and how her example can inspire us today.
