The Politics of Upheaval, 1935-1936, volume three of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and biographer Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.’s Age of Roosevelt series, concentrates on the turbulent concluding years of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first term. A measure of economic recovery revived political conflict and emboldened FDR’s critics to denounce “that man in the White house.” To his left were demagogues — Huey Long, Father Coughlin, and Dr. Townsend. To his right were the champions of the old order — ex-president Herbert Hoover, the American Liberty League, and the august Supreme Court. For a time, the New Deal seemed to lose its momentum. But in 1935 FDR rallied and produced a legislative record even more impressive than the Hundred Days of 1933 — a set of statutes that transformed the social and economic landscape of American life. In 1936 FDR coasted to reelection on a landslide. Schlesinger has his usual touch with colorful personalities and draws a warmly sympathetic portrait of Alf M. Landon, the Republican candidate of 1936.

The best review of FDR ever.2014年9月8日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Brilliant writing. A clear and profound examination of FDR's policies and in depth perspectives on the people, situations, and problems of the era. One cannot comprehend Roosevelt without knowing the times in which he lived. No other work written since the 40s compare to Schlesinger's Age Of Roosevelt. For a thorough historical study these three books are incredibly easy reading and interesting. Nothing dry and boring here!

Why did I wait so long to read Schlesinger? I keep kicking myself about this lapse. "The Age of Roosevelt" is a must read. All four volumes are well researched, documented and written in a style that rivets the readers attention throughout.
