Abstract:

This work is the "memoirs" FDR might have written, based on Roosevelt's own papers and letters, and presented as a draft for Roosevelt's use. Bernard Asbell spent six years analyzing Roosevelt's private papers, and diaries of White House associates, and interviewers. He has written, as a speculation on history, F.D.R.'s New Deal memoirs for him. Each chapter includes a background memorandum, exploring Roosevelt's character. Rich in fact and psychological speculation, these memoranda reinterpret the political man in terms of his most personal experiences.
