"The mutually energizing and often volatile friendship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Adlai Stevenson--unexplored in depth by scholars until this study--was one of the last century's remarkable political alliances. Employing letters and diaries as well as contemporary media accounts, this book examines the perspectives, the convictions, the style, and the spirit that both principals brought to the calling of public service"--Provided by publisher
