AS F.D.R. SAID by Frank Kingdon


Email this review


In his own words, spoken and written, this excerpting from talks, addresses, interviews, books, etc. Is a candid close-up of the man and his concepts. His stories about himself- and the stories told about him; his philosophy (the stress on the individual) and his political vision; his ""organic"" and ""pragmatic"" approach to history in general and as he was shaping it; his ideals of unity and brotherhood; his performance as a politician and a campaigner; his attitudes towards religion, art, nature, etc. An informal portrait which stresses the warmth, the patience, the humor, the humanity of a great man who approached great things on simple terms, this is for the reader who likes his biography reduced to an undemanding, popular presentation.
