T. R. : The Last Romantic
by H. W. Brands




Overview -
In his time, there was no more popular national figure than Theodore Roosevelt. Author H. W. Brands explains the qualities that, beyond the energy he brought to every political office held, his unshakable moral convictions, or his status as a war hero, endeared Roosevelt to the American people.

Yet, according to Brands, an examination of Roosevelt's private life reveals a man whose public strengths hid enormous personal deficiencies. His highly exaggerated, uncompromising ways drove associates and friends crazy. His historical writings (which Brands quotes extensively) are nothing if not a boy's endless macho fantasies. Even more revealing was Roosevelt as son, brother, father, and husband.

Beautifully written and meticulously researched, here is a presidential biography certain to take its place among the classics of the genre.
