Here Warren Kimball explores Roosevelt's vision of the postwar world by laying out the nature and development of FDR's "war aims"--his long-range political goals. As the face of eastern Europe and the world changes before our eyes, Roosevelt's goals, dismissed during the Cold War as impractical, seem less unrealistic today.

Industry Reviews

"Warren Kimball has produced a remarkable book, detailed, even encyclopaedic in its archival knowledge, ... illuminating."--D. Cameron Watt, The Times Literary Supplement "A finely drawn portrait... Kimball valiantly boxes with Roosevelt's shadow to determine the assumptions which underpinned the President's personal diplomacy with Britain and the Soviet Union, and his vision for postwar Europe."--Patricia M. Clavin, Reviews in American History "The Juggler illustrates Kimball's mastery of Roosevelt's wartime diplomacy and the vast amount of documentary and secondary evidence he brings to the subject... [These are] finely crafted essays on Franklin Roosevelt as wartime statesman..."--Patricia M. Clavin, Reviews in American History "The great might-have-been is whether postwar Soviet-American relations would have been different had Roosevelt lived. All through The Juggler, Professor Kimball is unafraid to speculate... [A] lively history."--Herbert Mitgang, The New York Times
