FDR and the American Crisis by Albert Marrin - ESSENTIAL

Marrin, Albert. FDR and the American Crisis Alfred A. Knopf, 2015. $24.99. 283 pgs.  Content: PG

Marrin’s non-fiction book is a great reference for any student wanting to know more about FDR’s life, presidency, and controversial choices such as his continuation of Jim Crow laws and discrimination against Jews.  The book does a good job of balancing the many great things FDR did while also openly discussing some of the negative aspects of his political career. The pictures are excellent and plentiful.  They help to make the history more relatable and easy to understand.
