Description
This unique multimedia portrait shows a nation in crisis in the context of a president's direct communication with the public at the dawn of the media age. Historian Terry Golway examines how Franklin Roosevelt allayed America's worst fears and led the nation to victory in World War II, and in the process established the practice of the "media presidency" with his fireside chats, the first presidential addresses broadcast nationally from the White House. The book offers illustrated essays analyzing 30 of Roosevelt's speeches, while excerpts from the speeches themselves are presented on an audio CD, allowing listeners to hear the subtleties of the president's reading.

"Readers will be struck by Roosevelt's immense oratory skills. In his famous 'fireside chats,' the president adopted a down-to-earth, fatherly tone, but when the occasion demanded it, he could thunderously deliver such lines as, 'this generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.' A fine contextualization of Roosevelt's life and times."Kirkus Reviews
