About this product
- DescriptionIn Roosevelt and Stalin, Susan Butler tells the story of how the leader of the capitalist world and the leader of the Communist world became more than allies of convenience during World War II. They shared the same outlook for the postwar world, and formed an uneasy yet deep friendship, shaping theglobal stage from the war to the decades leading up to and into the new century. The book makes clear that Roosevelt worked hard to win Stalin over, by always holding out the promise that Roosevelt s own ideas were the best hope for the future peace and security of Russia. Stalin, however, was initially unconvinced that Roosevelt s planned world organization, even with police powers, would be strong eugh to keep Germany from starting anew war. In the end we see how Stalin s opinion of Roosevelt evolved and how he began to view FDR as the key to peace. Roosevelt and Stalin is a revelatory portrait of this crucial, geopolitical partnership.
