Eleanor Roosevelt is an extensively researched, revisionist text which sings praises of one of this century's most revered and least understood women. Eleanor Roosevelt was born in 1884 into a prominent American family, but her childhood was often bitter. Her parents could not offer her the love and security she needed, and they died when she was very young. Raised by maternal relatives, she studied for a time in England, then fell in love with her cousin, Franklin Roosevelt. She seemed destined to be a socialite wife of a wealthy politician, and that is how her life has most often been interpreted. But Blanche Cook chronicles Eleanor Roosevelt's real life: her political agenda - often refreshingly at odds with the powerful political arena surrounding her husband - and her lifelong efforts on behalf of women, children, and workers. Equally compelling is the author's compassionate and revealing study of this remarkable woman's personal life. Although her abiding respect and love for her husband and children is central to her life, it is Eleanor Roosevelt's passionate friendships with the independent and sometimes radical women intellectuals of her time, and in particular, her intense relationship with Lorena Hickock, which underscore her deep commitment and struggle to create a separate and fulfilling life for herself. We are left in awe of this woman, this freethinking iconoclast who bucks tradition, and of Blanche Cook's inspired telling of Eleanor Roosevelt's first fifty years. Книга «Eleanor Roosevelt» автора Blanche Wiesen Cook оценена посетителями КнигоГид, и её читательский рейтинг составил 8.80 из 10.
