Abstract:

This further pruning and revision has been executed in the interest of the general reader, to provide a shorter edition centered more specifically upon the friendship and collaboration between Morgenthau and FDR, through the Depression, the New Deal, and the Second World War. Blum does venture some (largely positive) assessment of Morgenthau's career in his introduction and some generally accepted criticism (of Morgenthau's reluctance to embrace a Keynesian fiscal policy, of his Plan for Germany) in the body of the work. But essentially the emphases, insights, and conclusions are Morgenthau's, and the book closes with his reflections in 1966 about his years in government and what they had meant to him (he died in 1967). For a popular historical work, this is still a fairly dense accounting, with the political far outweighing the personal content. Reasonably accessible, nonetheless, and clearly a major secondary/primary source on the two men and the history they helped shape. - Kirkus Review.
