Roosevelt in Retrospect: a Profile in History

By John Gunther
Harper, 1950
410 pp. $3.75

Mr. Gunther's unpretentious, observant and literate reporting continues to charm in his latest contribution to contemporary history--a review of the whole of the late President's career and an appraisal of an extraordinarily complex personality. While the author's obvious admiration for his subject does not inhibit a frank discussion of Roosevelt's weaknesses, many of the more blatant charges and rumors--especially those concerning FDR's foreign policy and his health--are effectively demolished.
