From Our Editors

Modern America was born in the raging fires of war during 1940s Europe, when the isolationist country still weakened by the Depression entered the fray. From this point Doris Kearns Goodwin examines how this country became the leading power on the international stage only five years later. Kearns' answer: The dynamic, unique partnership between Franklin Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor was based on mutual respect and shared work. The research in No Ordinary Time is deep and far-reaching, giving an excellent view to a truly first couple.
