ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
James MacGregor Burns ( b. August 3, 1918 ) is a presidential biographer, authority on leadership studies, Woodrow Wilson Professor (emeritus) of Political Science at Williams College, and scholar at the James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award in 1971 for his Roosevelt: Soldier of Freedom 1940-1945.

His key innovation in leadership theory was shifting away from studying the traits of great men and transactional management to focus on the interaction of leaders and led as collaborators working toward mutual benefit. He is best known for contributions to the Transformational, Aspirational and Visionary schools of leadership theory.

Roosevelt had to deal with some unbelievable emotional times during his presidency so I am very interested in reading about this man. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

I have read so much about Abraham Lincoln. I read his three book biography by Carl Sandburg and an armload of other books. Where I grew up, Indiana, they always said that he spent his "formative years here".

I enjoy reading books on U.S. presidents.I enjoy reading books on U.S. presidents. Although heavily criticized by conservatives both past and present, the WPA and CCC built some lovely buildings in state and national parks that still exist to this day.
