Eleanor Roosevelt and Adlai Stevenson Paperback / softback
Part of the The World of the Roosevelts series
The mutually energizing and often volatile friendship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Adlai Stevenson - unexplored in depth by scholars until this study - was one of the last century s remarkable political alliances.
Both Stevenson and Eleanor Roosevelt shared a view of politics as a moral enterprise, one in which the fulfillment of its "mission" was the betterment of the human condition.
This belief was the foundation upon which their legislative initiatives were constructed.
Employing letters and diaries as well as contemporary media accounts, this book examines the perspectives, the convictions, the style, and the spirit that both principals brought to the calling of public service.
