Named a Best Book of the Year by The Washington Post and NPR “We come to see in FDR the magisterial, central figure in the greatest and richest political tapestry of our nation’s entire history” —Nigel Hamilton, Boston Globe “Meticulously researched and authoritative” —Douglas Brinkley, The Washington Post “A workmanlike addition to the literature on Roosevelt.” —David Nasaw, The New York Times “Dallek offers an FDR relevant to our sharply divided nation” —Michael Kazin “Will rank among the standard biographies of its subject” —Publishers Weekly A one-volume biography of Roosevelt by the #1 New York Times bestselling biographer of JFK, focusing on his career as an incomparable politician, uniter, and deal maker In an era of such great national divisiveness, there could be no more timely biography of one of our greatest presidents than one that focuses on his unparalleled political ability as a uniter and consensus maker. Robert Dallek’s Franklin D. Roosevelt: A Political Life takes a fresh look at the many compelling questions that have attracted all his biographers: how did a man who came from so privileged a background become the greatest presidential champion of the country’s needy? How did someone who never won recognition for his intellect foster revolutionary changes in the country’s economic and social institutions? How did Roosevelt work such a profound change in the country’s foreign relations? For FDR, politics was a far more interesting and fulfilling pursuit than the management of family fortunes or the indulgence of personal pleasure, and by the time he became president, he had commanded the love and affection of millions of people. While all Roosevelt’s biographers agree that the onset of polio at the age of thirty-nine endowed him with a much greater sense of humanity, Dallek sees the affliction as an insufficient explanation for his transformation into a masterful politician who would win an unprecedented four presidential terms, initiate landmark reforms that changed the American industrial system, and transform an isolationist country into an international superpower. Dallek attributes FDR’s success to two remarkable political insights. First, unlike any other president, he understood that effectiveness in the American political system depended on building a national consensus and commanding stable long-term popular support. Second, he made the presidency the central, most influential institution in modern America’s political system. In addressing the country’s international and domestic problems, Roosevelt recognized the vital importance of remaining closely attentive to the full range of public sentiment around policy-making decisions—perhaps FDR’s most enduring lesson in effective leadership.

ARE THE RUSSIANS INFLUENCING THE ELECTION?It's January 1936, and Hollywood star Ginger Rogers arrives in Washington for the annual President's Birthday Ball, a fundraiser for the polio patients at Warm Springs, Georgia. When the security detail goes missing after the ball, Ginger joins the President's secretary, Missy LeHand, to deposit more than $20,000 raised at the ball, but they are hijacked on the way to the bank. Who took the money? Was it a common criminal, or is someone trying to embarrass FDR as he faces re-election? Or could it be something more insidious? Missy, FBI Agent Corey Wainwright, and that bad-girl reporter Joan Roswell join forces to crack this complex case. Kelly Durham, author of eight thrillers set against the backdrops of World War II and the Golden Age of Hollywood, and Kathryn Smith, author of Missy LeHand's biography THE GATEKEEPER, team up again in the second Missy LeHand Mystery.

Wach bleiben, so lange wie möglich. Die Müdigkeit niederringen. Die Rechnung ist einfach: In einer Stunde kann ich 30 falsche Ausweise herstellen. Wenn ich eine Stunde schlafe, sterben 30 Menschen " 1943 beginnt Adolfo Kaminsky, für die französische Résistance gefälschte Papiere herzustellen Ausweise, die Tausende von Juden vor Deportation und sicherem Tod bewahrten. Der siebzehnjährige Färberlehrling und geniale Autodidakt, der selbst aus einer russischstämmigen jüdischen Familie kommt, weiß damals noch nicht, dass er eine Lebensentscheidung getroffen hat. Denn auch nach dem Krieg wird Kaminsky 30 Jahre seines Lebens im Untergrund verbringen und die großen Widerstandsbewegungen des 20. Jahrhunderts mit falschen Papieren und Identitäten versorgen, immer auf der Flucht vor der Entdeckung, gehetzt von seinem Gewissen und ohne je Geld für seine Arbeit zu nehmen. Vom Algerienkrieg und den südamerikanischen Befreiungsbewegungen bis zu den Aufständen gegen Diktatoren wie Salazar, Franco, die griechischen Obristen und der südafrikanischen Anti-Apartheidsbewegung: Kaminsky hat sie, aus Überzeugung und mit technisch immer ausgefeilteren Methoden, alle mit falschen Papieren unterstützt.
