One of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's closest friends and the first female secretary of labor, Frances Perkins capitalized on the President's political savvy and popularity to enact most of the Depression-Era programs that are today considered essential parts of this country's social safety network. More than a biography of an extraordinary woman, it is a window into another time through which we are able to observe the birthing pains of reforms we now take for granted. Paperback. 458 pgs.
