      The book is a critical look at the modern American presidency - and, in particular, at the impact that war has had on the highest office of government. While Reedy wrote nothing negative about Lyndon Johnson, the former president was most unhappy with Reedy's frank assessment of the presidency.   The book investigates the many facets of Roosevelt's politics and personality that inspired a nation to believe that the presidency had been reborn. This account tells the story of Roosevelt's uniquely open relationship with the press, a sea change from previous presidential protocol, prompting one editor to proclaim that "for box office.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected President of the United States four times: , , , and Prior to the third-term election of , it was a presidential tradition set by George Washington that presidents only held the office for two terms. Thus the rise of the czars, as well as other troubling aspects of the modern presidency, connect inevitably to the quantitative and qualitative growth of the federal government. Indeed, one cannot escape the warnings offered by Alexis de Tocqueville at the end of Democracy in America, when he conceived what a democratic tyranny would look like.
