Nothing to Fear: FDR's Inner Circle and the Hundred Days That Created Modern America (Paperback)

Not in the store—Ships in 1-5 Days


"A fascinating account of an extraordinary moment in the life of the United States." --"The New York Times"
With the world currently in the grips of a financial crisis unlike anything since the Great Depression, "Nothing to Fear" could not be timelier. This acclaimed work of history brings to life Franklin Roosevelt's first hundred days in office, when he and his inner circle launched the New Deal, forever reinventing the role of the federal government. As Cohen reveals, five fiercely intelligent, often clashing personalities presided over this transformation and pushed the president to embrace a bold solution. "Nothing to Fear" is the definitive portrait of the men and women who engineered the nation's recovery from the worst economic crisis in American history.
