KIRKUS REVIEW

It seems soon to attempt an appraisal of the Roosevelt years as a historical unit, but Dexter Perkins has approached his subject with admirable restraint and extraordinary objectivity to emerge with a profile of an era, of vital changes and new thought processes, and an evolving sense of responsibility at all levels in the conception of the role of government in American life. With emphasis on Roosevelt's accomplishments and influence, good and bad, on those who grew up in the Roosevelt years and as a memory prop for their elders.
