The life and presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt not only epitomized the times of a remarkable individual thrown into the midst of one of history's most difficult periods, but his legacy also helped to define an entire generation and, to this day, continues to impact the course of American politics and history. The presidency of FDR (1882-1945) began during the Great Depression and extended into an unprecedented fourth term that concluded only with his death. Consequently, the amount of literature written about our 32nd president is enormous. Historian Kenneth E. Hendrickson has completed the Herculean task of compiling the most comprehensive English-language bibliography ever on a single individual and his influence. The scope of this mammoth resource is exhaustive. It contains references and annotations to all books, articles, and dissertations concerning Franklin Delano Roosevelt, his life, his presidency, important people, and events written and published to 1994. Nearly 10,000 entries are arranged in nine chapters, each of which focuses on a particular aspect of FDR's life and career. This three-volume set has been designed to provide researchers with easy access to all the books, chapters, articles, and doctoral dissertations written on Roosevelt, his career, his family, his associates, the America in which he lived, and all the major events of his presidency. Save for battle literature on World War II, every important topic related to FDR and his presidency can be found. The author and subject indexes, coupled with the Table of Contents, provide accessible data on any relevant topic. The researcher is advised to begin with the Table of Contents and then cross-reference both topics and authors with the index. This technique will produce a considerable list of annotated references on any desired topic.

Hendrickson (history, Midwestern State U.) lists 9,860 books, chapters in books, scholarly articles, and doctoral dissertations covering all aspects of life during the Roosevelt presidency and materials on Franklin Roosevelt himself and his family. Most of the entries are annotated with brief, occasionally evaluative, descriptions of content. The material is presented topically, with the first volume covering Franklin Roosevelt; major aspects of his presidency; political, military, and diplomatic personalities; agriculture, business, industry, labor, the economy, and veterans affairs; and the arts, culture, health and welfare, and science and technology. The second volume provides coverage of civil rights, civil liberties, politics, public opinion, and the Supreme Court; pre-war foreign affairs; diplomacy, strategy, and the home front during World War II; and bibliographies, documents, and general reference works. A subject index and an author index are provided in the final volume. Both of these volumes contain a detailed chronology and a brief introductory essay on Roosevelt's life and presidency. The collection process for the materials ended in 1994 and battle literature on World War II was omitted in the interests of conserving space. * Reference and Research Book News *
