Description

For this new edition, Dallek has added an Afterword to his classic, Bancroft Prize-winning study of Franklin Roosevelt's diplomacy, which was first published in 1981. He answers recent critics who have attacked Roosevelt for producing Pearl Harbor, for 'giving away' Eastern Europe to Stalin at Yalta, and for abandoning European Jews during the Holocaust. Dallek reaffirms the strength and effectiveness of Roosevelt's diplomacy and wartime leadership.show more
