The Wars of the Roosevelts: The Ruthless Rise of America's Greatest Political Family

New York: Harper & Bros, 2016. First edition. First edition/printing. A fully fine, fresh, unread copy in equally fine dust jacket. Hardcover. x+ genealogical chart+ 609 pp. with bibliography, index. Illustrated. Groundbreaking group portrait of this legenday American family. Drawing on previously hidden historical documents and interviews with the long-silent :illegitimate" branch of the family, the author argues that the Roosevelt's rise to power and prestige was actually driven by a series of intense personal contests that at times devolved in blood sports. In addition to the two Presidents, Mann brings into focus TR's children---Alice, Ted, and Kermit--and presents a fascinating alternate picture of Eleanor Roosevelt who experienced the conflict firsthand, watching her uncle cruelly destroy her father, his brother, Elliott.
