Eleanor Roosevelt overcame many hardships throughout her life. Considered homely, Roosevelt grew up at the end of the Victorian era in an aristocratic family, where, as far as women were concerned, looks mattered more than intelligence. She lost both of her parents before she was 10 years old. At age 19, Roosevelt married her fifth cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and they had six children. From this profile emerged a woman who captured the attention of the American public, and eventually of the world, as she became a journalist, first lady, diplomat, and social activist. When Franklin was elected president, she created a new role for the first lady, advocating an array of causes. She fought personal battles against depression and anorexia even as she fought public ones for the rights of African Americans, women, and immigrants. Read about one of America's most notable women in Eleanor Roosevelt.

Memorialised as a US heroine and an iconoclastic humanitarian who sought to protect society’s marginalised, Eleanor Roosevelt also, at times, disappointed contemporaries and biographers with some of her stances. Examining a period of her life that has not been extensively explored, this book challenges the previously held universality of Eleanor Roosevelt’s humanitarianism. The Palestinian question is used as a case study to explore the practical application of her commitment to social justice, and the author argues that, at times, Roosevelt’s humanitarianism was illogical, limited and flawed by pragmatism. New insights are provided into Eleanor Roosevelt’s human rights activism – its dichotomies, its inspiration, and the effect it had on US relations with the Middle East. This book will appeal to academics working across a range of disciplines including history, diplomatic history, American studies, Middle Eastern studies, US foreign policy, human rights and women’s studies.

Eleanor Roosevelt's character was shaped by the history and culture of the Hudson Valley. More than that, Eleanor Roosevelt loved the Hudson Valley. A woman who knew and cared for the whole world chose this place, Val-Kill, as her home in a cottage by a stream. Eleanor Roosevelt: A Hudson Valley Remembrance reflects her unaffected simplicity and caring interest in her neighbors' concerns. Remembered by friends, colleagues, neighbors, and young people, these qualities inspired a community-based group to lead efforts to save her home in 1977 as the country's first national historic site dedicated to a First Lady. The Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill continues her work on issues that affect life today.

This book is about Eleanor´s humanitarianism and her fight for social justice. She started out early in life as an orphan by the age of eleven. Sent to her grandmother´s home, she then was sent to England to a finishing school for girls. Here she met an extraordinary teacher, Mlle. Souvestre, who opened the world for her to see and experience. Her teacher promoted self awareness and ´think for yourself´ attitude to help women become more sustained in their own lives. Once she finished school after three years, Eleanor came back to New York to have her coming out party for high society. Here she met FDR once more since childhood. They started to get to know one another and soon found they were in love and dating. They married in March of 1903 even though FDR´s mother Sara did not approve. However, Eleanor did many things to help the many men, women, and children of Rivington Street in New York. She took FDR down there before they were married and this I believe helped to fuel the injustice in the world seen by Eleanor and FDR, allowing them to make the wrongs right as best as they could. This in turn follows segregation of all levels and including the military, helping the disabled, children of all ages, refugees including those running from Nazi Germany during the Holocaust, and many other reasons to state. The book highlights on some of her work that she did alone, with FDR and with some women friends whom she became very close with over the years. I hope that people would be intrigued enough to read about this extraordinary woman whose work and ideals are still sought after and followed to this day. Thank you. Crystal Roberts

Eleanor Roosevelt's remarkable ability to confront and overcome hurdles-be they political, personal, or social-made her one of the greatest leaders of the last century, if not all time. In Leadership the Eleanor Roosevelt Way, author and scholar Robin Gerber examines the values, tactics, and beliefs that enabled Eleanor Roosevelt to bring about tremendous change-in herself and in the world. Examining the former first lady's rise from a difficult childhood to her enormously productive and politically involved years in the White House, as a U.N. delegate and an honorary ambassador, an author, and beyond, Gerber offers women an inspiring road map to heroic living and an unparalleled model for personal achievement.
