The survey is lengthy, but the method is simple: to reconceptualize Roosevelt’s maneuvering on the international stage within the context of public and congressional opinion. Tracing Roosevelt through his early years, Dallek portrays him as, at core, an idealistic internationalist.

Since the original publication of this classic book in 1979, Roosevelt's foreign policy has come under attack on three main points: Was Roosevelt responsible for the confrontation with Japan that led to the attack at Pearl Harbor? Did Roosevelt "give away" Eastern Europe to Stalin and the U.S.S.R. at Yalta? And, most significantly, did Roosevelt abandon Europe's Jews to the Holocaust, making no direct effort to aid them? In a new Afterword to his definitive history, Dallek vigorously and brilliantly defends Roosevelt's policy. He emphasizes how Roosevelt operated as a master politician in maintaining a national consensus for his foreign policy throughout his presidency and how he brilliantly achieved his policy and military goals.

I agree with much of the criticism of this book. It does read like a hagiography of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Many will not share Dallek's highly "liberal" interpretation of Roosevelt as a great wartime leader (undoubtedly he was a great domestic leader). Roosevelt's seemingly boundless idealism blinded him to a number of realities during the war which led to additional suffering of millions. First was his sugar-coated understanding of the Soviet regime under Stalin. In this context, Lend Lease should never have been extended to the Soviets. Doing so almost certainly prolonged the war in the West (after Normandy, the Allies literally rand out of gas) and almost certainly was the decisive factor in the Soviets advancing as far West as they did and first into Eastern Europe. Then of course there was Roosevelt;'s ridiculous and moralistic "Unconditional Surrender," which arguably prolonged the war (with Germany at least) by up to a year. Due to this misguided policy - with which Churchill strongly disagreed - resistance groups in Germany had nowhere to turn and were easy prey for the Nazis. Then there was the obvious neglect to act on pretty clear (and early) intelligence concerning the occurrence of actual genocide (not yet termed Holocaust). If only the rail lines had been targeted for bombing instead of the city centers, countless lives could have been saved. This still remains to be explained. And of course then there was the decision to let de-Gaulle lead the march first into Paris, the disastrous Yalta Agreement. etc. etc. Dallek's book does a poor job of analyzing and explaining all of these. The book is still worth browsing for historical background and a chronological recounting of US wartime foreign policy, but should not be relied upon to explain the very controversial dimensions of Roosevelt's wartime policies.

I completely endorse the review of Greg Goebel who rated this book a 4 star. His review is below. I have some additional thoughts. They are:

The book focuses on foreign policy and military decisions in Europe, Russia, and China. Why did the author, Robert Dallek, not discuss any decisions FDR made to America's military campaign in the Pacific?

I was surprised that FDR made so many military decisions. He was very wise and knowledgeable about European matters.

Professor Dallek had a tremendous number of notes for this book. He is a true professional historian.

Review by Greg Goebel

"The title of Robert Dallek's FDR & AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY actually describes this book very neatly: it's a comprehensive overview of all US foreign policy during the Roosevelt II Administration -- not just US policy relative to the emerging Axis powers, but also to Latin America and elsewhere.

As the title also might suggest, this is basically a scholarly book, not really suitable for readers who haven't obtained a general idea of the broad sweep of American international politics in the era. It's for readers who want to get the nitty-gritty on the matter and it can even be a bit of a slog for them. As scholarly books go, however, it is not extremely long nor particularly dry; but it's not a book for casual reading, either."

In one volume, Robert Dallek has attempted to counter the vast amount of printed material covering Franklin D. Roosevelt's domestic policies during the 1930's and 1940's. The result is a mammoth effort that sheds light on the enormous pressures Roosevelt faced both at home and abroad during the turbulent decades when the world struggled to emerge from the shambles of a Great Depression, and prepare itself for a global conflict. Dallek argues that most historians do not fully understand the nature of Roosevelt's foreign policy. Dallek also claims that researchers tend to focus on FDR's shortcomings without emphasizing the constraints with which he was forced to work. Dallek's main purpose is to highlight the continual dilemmas Roosevelt faced in an effort to always strive for balance and compromise between public opinion and foreign affairs. FDR realized the need to break the country away from isolationism and place it in the global arena, both economically and politically, while at the same time facing the growing threat from the Axis powers. Though Dallek is noted as a gifted narrator, it is Roosevelt's leadership style,criticized as somewhat unorthodox,and the many quandaries in which he prevailed that provides the strength of Dallek's book. Dallek chose a ridged chronological format, which he maintained throughout the book. The chronological methodology in essential to enable the reader to understand the patterns that emerged within Roosevelt's style of leadership. For instance, rather than try to sway public opinion as to why the United States should supply aid to its allies or begin preparing for war, Roosevelt instead would allow the events then taking shape in Europe and Asia to speak for themselves to convince the American public. FDR's early foreign policy (1932-1935) was primarily centered on economic recovery. Roosevelt clearly understood that the Great Depression was a global problem. Roosevelt strove to reduce tariffs, improve trade and stabilize the dollar with foreign currencies. He has been widely criticized for going off the gold standard and blamed for the failure of the London Economic Conference. Dallek states, however, that Roosevelt clearly achieved two very important underlying objectives: First, domestic economic recovery must take priority over foreign affairs This belief was evident in the many Hundred Days policies that FDR implemented. Second, Dallek argues that Roosevelt's main goal was at best to "restore a measure of faith in international cooperation." Roosevelt was always aware of his limitations. Dallek believes that the years 1935-1939 was the most important period in Roosevelt's foreign policy. During this time, Roosevelt faced many obstacles. Dubbed an "Idealist" for his efforts towards disarmament and United States participation in the World Court, FDR was also criticized as being naïve in his reactions to the aggressive actions of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. Dallek diligently describes how FDR's hands were tied by the very nature of the Neutrality Acts, pressure from Isolationists, student peace activists, and religious groups, particularly Catholics at home. The events of World War II exposed yet more criticisms upon Roosevelt's handling of foreign affairs. In a new Afterword (1995), Dallek explains some of the legitimate critiques as well as some of the ludicrous claims concerning FDR's handling of the war. Dallek disregards the revisionist view that Roosevelt knew of, or allowed the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor as an excuse to draw the United States into the war. Some revisionists even propose the existence of a British conspiracy to lure the United States into the war. Dallek points out there are even those that claim British pilots flying planes with Japanese markings took part in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Dallek praises Roosevelt as a visionary, accurately predicting a world view he never lived to see. Dallek disagrees with the "naïveté" Roosevelt exhibited at Yalta, claiming FDR did not sell out Eastern Europe to Stalin. Dallek dismisses this as a myth, claiming Roosevelt clearly understood the price for 20 million Russian killed during World War II would be Eastern Europe. Dallek also defends Roosevelt's decision to back the doomed Chiang Kai-shek regime in China. Dallek believes FDR knew that someday China would be a dominant world power and although he felt that democracy in both China and the Soviet Union were unlikely, he hoped for eventual global cooperation between the superpowers. Dallek harshest criticism of Roosevelt's tenure is the interment of Japanese-Americans. This book offers the reader valuable insight into the complex problems facing Roosevelt's decision-making processes on the eve of World War II. For this reason, Dallek's work holds a valued place in political and historical literature.
