North Carolina Bookwatch | William Leuchtenburg - In The Shadow Of FDR: From Harry Truman To Barack Obama

North Carolina Bookwatch 2010- 2011 | UNC-TV

William Leuchtenburg - In The Shadow Of FDR: From Harry Truman To Barack ObamaA ghost has inhabited the Oval Office since 1945 the ghost of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR's formidable presence has cast a large shadow on the occupants of that office in the years since his death, and an appreciation of his continuing influence remains essential to understanding the contemporary presidency. This new edition of In the Shadow of FDR has been updated to examine the presidency of George W. Bush and the first 100 days of the presidency of Barack Obama. The Obama presidency is evidence not just of the continuing relevance of FDR for assessing executive power but also of the salience of FDR's name in party politics and policy formulation.

North Carolina Bookwatch | William Leuchtenburg

North Carolina Bookwatch 2006-2007 | UNC-TV

DG Martin interviews William Leuchtenburg - The White House Looks South Perhaps not southerners in the usual sense, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and Lyndon B. Johnson each demonstrated a political style and philosophy that helped them influence the South and unite the country in ways that few other presidents have. Their intimate associations with the South gave these three presidents an empathy toward and acceptance in the region. In urging southerners to jettison outworn folkways, Roosevelt could speak as a neighbor and adopted son, Truman as a border-stater who had been taught to revere the Lost Cause, and Johnson as a native who had been scorned by Yankees.
