“Overall this is a great addition to the literature on Franklin Roosevelt, combining as it does an encapsulation of all the historical research about him and his presidency in every aspect from conservation and the Supreme Court to war policy and relations with Canada.” (Expofairs, 13 March 2013)
“So librarians who have readers with an interest in this subject should watch out for further books in the series.” (Reference Reviews, 2012)
"The range of essays, each with endnotes and further readings, is impressive; the book covers not only the usual subjects such as the New Deal, foreign relations, and the presidential elections, but other less discussed issues such as conditions and treatment of minorities and land conservation . . . For serious students of FDR's presidency, from undergraduates to faculty and scholars, this is an indispensable foundational source." (Library Journal, 2011)“This masterful work will be used by all students of the Roosevelt era. An indispensible guide to FDR's career, it reviews existing analysis of his life and times and raises new questions about the impact of his presidency on the American nation. Relevant to contemporary issues, it brings historical insight to bear on current debates of political leadership and the role of government.” – Maurine H. Beasley, University of Maryland, author of Eleanor Roosevelt: Transformative First Lady
“These essays covering every relevant topic about FDR are essential in understanding our 32nd president. Pederson’s Companion to Franklin D. Roosevelt is a must read for all interested in the presidency, leadership and 20th century history.” – Frank J. Williams, retired Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court and co-editor of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Transformation of the Supreme Court
