Praise

“Wonderful. . . . Rich in insights and fresh perspectives. . . . Brands is something of a rare breed. . . . This volume shows the precision and attention to detail that one would expect from a scholar and, at the same time, reads like a novel. . . . It may well be the best general biography of Franklin Roosevelt we will see for many years to come.” —Christian Science Monitor
 
“Excellent. . . . If you want to understand how a great president should act, Traitor to His Class is must reading.” —The New York Observer
 
“[Roosevelt] was an extraordinarily complicated man and the author copes skilfully with his complexity. . . . Mr. Brands is masterly.” —The Economist
 
“A graceful account of this complex, controversial, political genius who, everyone agrees, changed the course of history. Well-researched and exquisitely detailed.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“Fresh, approachable, even-handed.” —Boston Globe
 
“H. W. Brands has accomplished a remarkable feat in this terrific work. As if he were creating characters in a novel, he has brought to vivid life the central figures in his story—FDR, Eleanor, Sara Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and the inner circle in the White House—while at the same time providing a fresh understanding of the rich historical context for their thoughts and actions at every step along the way.” —Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and author of Team of Rivals
