Summary
"Curtis Roosevelt was three when he and his sister, Eleanor, arrived at the White House soon after their grandfather's inauguration. The country's ''First Grandchildren,'' a pint-sized double act, they were known to the media as ''sistie and Buzzie.'' In this rich memoir, Roosevelt brings us into ''the goldfish bowl,'' as his family called it - that glare of public scrutiny to which all presidential households must submit. He recounts his misadventures as a hapless kid in an unforgivably formal setting and describes his role as a tiny planet circling the dual suns of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Blending self-abasement, humor, awe and affection, Too Close to the Sun is an intimate portrait of two of the most influential and inspirational figures in modern American history - and a thoughtful exploration of the emotional impact of growing up in their irresistible aura.

Summary
"A slice of Washington, DC, history that “traces the careers of a small group that would come to dominate American policy formation” (The Washington Times). On the eve of World War I, a group of young men and women came together in Washington’s tony Dupont Circle neighborhood. They were ambitious for personal and social advancement, and bound together by a sheer determination to remake America and the rest of the world in their progressive image. At one residence—nicknamed The House of Truth—lived Felix Frankfurter, a future Supreme Court Justice, and Walter Lippmann, later the most important political writer of the twentieth century. Another house served as the base for three siblings: John Foster Dulles, future Secretary of State, Allen Dulles, one of the founders of the CIA, and Eleanor Lansing Dulles, one of the most important economists of the age. Nearby lived young Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, even then rising political stars; William Bullitt, a charming and unscrupulous future ambassador; and Herbert Hoover, already the most famous American in the world. The group mixed cocktails, foreign policy, and bedmates as they set out to remake the world. For the next twenty years they pursued increasingly important careers as their private lives become ever more entangled. By the end of this story, on the eve of WWII, the group came together again for a second chance at history—and this time the result was the United Nations. “Illuminate[s] how interactions between an astonishing few could act as catalysts for relationships between nations.” —Publishers Weekly “A well-researched and well-written compact history that turns distant historical figures into real people.” —Foreword Reviews "Scripts of | Catapult | Argument ..."

Summary
"A candid and insightful look at an era and a life through the eyes of one of the most remarkable Americans of the twentieth century, First Lady and humanitarian Eleanor Roosevelt. The daughter of one of New York’s most influential families, niece of Theodore Roosevelt, and wife of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt witnessed some of the most remarkable decades in modern history, as America transitioned from the Gilded Age, the Progressive Era, and the Depression to World War II and the Cold War. A champion of the downtrodden, Eleanor drew on her experience and used her role as First Lady to help those in need. Intimately involved in her husband’s political life, from the governorship of New York to the White House, Eleanor would eventually become a powerful force of her own, heading women’s organizations and youth movements, and battling for consumer rights, civil rights, and improved housing. In the years after FDR’s death, this inspiring, controversial, and outspoken leader would become a U.N. Delegate, chairman of the Commission on Human Rights, a newspaper columnist, Democratic party activist, world-traveler, and diplomat devoted to the ideas of liberty and human rights. This single volume biography brings her into focus through her own words, illuminating the vanished world she grew up, her life with her political husband, and the post-war years when she worked to broaden cooperation and understanding at home and abroad. The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt includes 16 pages of black-and-white photos. "Scripts of | Harper Collins | Argument ..."
