Perlmutter's hard-hitting, revisionist history of Roosevelt's foreign policy explores FDR's not-so-grand alliance with the ruthless Soviet leader. As the first Western scholar granted access to key foreign ministry documents recently declassified in the former Soviet Union, Perlmutter provides a provocative portrait of a popular leader whose failure to comprehend Stalin's long-range goals had devastating results for the postwar world.

"Mr. Perlmutter has accomplished a remarkable feat, as much entrepreneurial as scholarly, in coaxing out of the Russians a fascinating assortment of internal Soviet memoranda and telegraphic reports on the U.S.-Soviet relationship."—National Review
"Perlmutter's interpretation of the FDR-Stalin relationship emerges from a scholarly examination of new sources and confirms what many contemporary critics argued in the mid-1940s; namely, that the American President was a failure as a diplomat and that he contributed to the outbreak of the Cold War."—Presidential Studies Quarterly
