Facing great odds and under enormous pressure, Roosevelt simply “refused to withdraw from controversy” (Cook 1999: 2, 7). In addition to the studies that focus specifically on Roosevelt, there are also any number of books that examine her as a supplemental figure to her husband and his administration. James MacGregor Burns in Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox, 1882–1940 (1956), Arthur Schlesinger, Jr in his multivolume study The Age of Roosevelt (1957–60), William Leuchtenburg in Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal, 1932–1940 (1963), Kenneth Davis in FDR into the Storm: 1937–1940 (1993), and, more recently, Jonathan Alter in The Defining Moment: FDR’s Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope (2006) all reflect on Eleanor’s political role, though they emphasize her significance to different degrees.
