FDR: a biography
Morgan is one of the few biographers of Franklin Roosevelt to attempt a complete life in one volume. His Roosevelt, opportunistic and shallow as a young man, was transformed by his fight with polio. As president, he was a political artist whose genius lay in being able to embody the country's collective will. Morgan takes special pains to defend Roosevelt against old charges of trickery at Pearl Harbor and gullibility at Yalta.
