    One thought on “In the Shadow of FDR: From Harry Truman to George W. Bush”

    1. A fascinating book about each president's search for a legacy in the wake of FDR. This was a text book for my political Science class "The Presidency" but I actually read it for my personal pleasure and was blown away by how much I learned and by what it must feel like to be in the President's shoes with all of the history to look back on.

    2. William E. Leuchtenburg has offered an exceptional piece that details how every president, since FDR, has had their administrations affected by our 32nd President.
