    Having previously ready both of Edmund Morris' books on Roosevelt I still found this books very intriguing It was interesting to read a biography about someone many would consider the ultimate man's man written by a woman Perhaps not surprisingly Dalton chose to portray his entire life through the lens of gender Normally I would have been

    TR can be easily dismissed by modern sensibilities Many of his beliefs have not withstood the test of time It is notable that many perhaps most of those beliefs were commonly held prejudice of the time The author does a good job of putting those beliefs in to context What is most notable was TR's ability to be swayed by what he saw and wha

N the development of his political career She also shows how TR flirted with progressive reform and then finally commited himself to deep reform in the Bull Moose campaign of 1912 Incorporating the latest scholarship into a vigorous narrative Dalton reinterprets both the man and his times to create an illuminating portrait that will change the way we see this great man and the Progressive Era. Theodore Roosevelt A Strenuous Life by Kathleen Dalton was an interesting interpretation of Theodore Roosevelt s life It was somewhat refreshing to examine Roosevelt s life from a intimate and emotional angle rather than a purely political stance Dalton does an able job of explaining Roosevelt s strenuous life and why he chose that path from his father s urging to TR s own relentless pushing of his own sons to embrace Muscular Christianity and the strenuous life Dalton begins with TR s early life and his medical trials and tribulations explaining how his father pushed TR aggressively to cure himself of asthma through rigorous exercise Roosevelt seeking to please his father adopted a strenuous regime that he always claimed cured his asthma Despite this Dalton states that in actuality TR continued to suffer with asthma for the rest of his life It was interesting to note that TR was close to his mother and enjoyed going with her to the sanitariums she freuented while he was young Once TR grew however he distanced himself from Mittie when he realized she did not follow a strenuous enough life to overcome her ailments Concerning TR s experiences as soldier and president I though Dalton s research writing and wordcraft were fairly stale providing run of the mill descriptions of TR s time as a Rough Rider and Commander in Chief Nothing new was presented here that one could not find in a better political biography of TR But this did not bother me much because of the fact that Dalton s purpose was not to describe Roosevelt s political career but his strenuous life and we get of an interesting picture of his time in the White House as a father rather than as president However it was interesting to note that the author mentioned the fact that TR felt obligated to fight in the Spanish American War because his father hired a substitute during the Civil War bringing a sense of shame to the family name and not living up to the ideal of a truly strenuous life Therefore when Roosevelt chose to serve not only was he resurrecting his family s name from perceived shame but was additionally living a complete strenuous life For me the most interesting passages of the book concerned the ten years of TR s post presidential life from his hunting trips abroad to his love hate relationship with the American people Attempting to describe TR s post presidency is difficult but Dalton covers this final chapter in Roosevelt s life uite well During this period Roosevelt as a politician was difficult to define One could consider him either a political outcast or drifter who did not fit into any of the political norms that dominated society then In a sense the ideas of his Progressive Party were too radical for the 1910 s It would take another Roosevelt to enact many of the programs that TR advocated during his final years For Roosevelt in my opinion the biggest political blunder that he made was when he announced after his substantial victory in 1904 that he would under no circumstances be a candidate for another term for president TR realized his mistake almost immediately and I believe regretted the decision for the rest of his life While he supported Taft during the 1908 election he was floored by his performance and ready to take the presidential chair again in 1912 Dalton describes this period in TR s life in incredible detail in which he takes a hard left turn politically advocating for child labor reforms women s suffrage and a host of other liberal ideals that he hoped to enact As a result of his split with the Republican Party however his candidacy was doomed to failure and Woodrow Wilson won a substantial electoral college victory defeating both TR and Taft With the election of 1912 behind him Dalton describes TR as one who continued to espouse liberal ideals but with no soapbox from which to broadcast them Finally I was impressed with Dalton s descriptions of TR s relationship with his sons As stated TR was a faithful advocate of the strenuous life and he hoped that each of his sons would follow in his foot steps However based upon Dalton s research I believe that his sons were not zealous advocates of the life he chose to lead It seemed that TR had a strained relationship with each of his sons from his relentless pushing of Ted Jr to his shaming of Archie for not being as competitive as his brothers each seemed exhausted by TR s relentless pursuit of the strenuous life but each seemed eager to appease their father Overall Dalton s biography of Roosevelt was a

Ous uest for self improvement In Theodore Roosevelt historian Kathleen Dalton reveals a man with a personal and intellectual depth rarely seen in our public figures She shows how Roosevelt’s struggle to overcome his frailties as a child helped to build his character and offers new insights into his family life uncovering the important role that Roosevelt’s second wife Edith Carow played i. At long last I have finished this mammoth exhaustive one volume biography of Theodore Roosevelt Given the depth of this one I have to wonder about the detail of multi volume biographies Anyway why would I read such a thing Well I read this because TR is my dad s favourite president I had mixed feelings about him and this biography has not helped me get rid of those mixed feelingsSo this is an extremely detailed biography of Roosevelt The level of detail is rather incredible and it s clearly a monumental undertaking Each paragraph seemingly contains at least one fact and often many and they re all methodically sourced As scholarship it s clearly an accomplishment And if earlier biographies of Roosevelt missed parts of his life or misrepresented him in some way then I guess this very well researched book is a welcome and necessary correctionBut I am just a guy who read this because his father likes TR I am not a Roosevelt scholar nor am I a fan or someone who has read other books about him For the layperson like me it s hard to see the appeal Because though this book is obsessively documented it is also mostly just And then this happened and then this happened for over 500 pages Dalton occasionally allows herself to reflect on his legacy but only does that occasionally and it s usually within the context of how we understand TR or how TR s post presidential radicalism was influential on FDR There is very little analysis and when there is criticism it is very muted For example one day TR got romantically or sexually frustrated and shot a dog In the pre Trump 21st century this fact would have kept him from ever winning political office and yet Dalton just drops it in there as if it s just something that happened and doesn t deserve much thought When evaluating the faults of his Presidency there is a brief 2 page summary of things he could have handled much better Again this book is over 500 pages longI am left feeling I know everything there is to know about TR s day to day life but with tons of uestions about whether or not he was actually someone to be admired I guess biography in the pure sense is supposed to give you the life story and allow you the reader to make your own conclusions but I guess I d rather read a book concerned with TR s place in history It s admirable that he is probably the most well read president in US history It s admirable that he changed his mind on many issues and became radical as he aged rather than what happens to many most people Some of the things he did as a politician such as reforming the NYPD appear to have been very good On the other hand he was extremely impulsive uick to anger an imperialist and nationalist responsible at least in part for many deaths in the Philippines and an absolute blowhard Had I been alive during WWI I probably would have hated his guts His obsession with war got one of his children killed too I understand that among US presidents he s probably one of the better ones at least since the American empire came into existence partially under his watch but he still was a very flawed man whose words were regularly far high minded than his actionsOf course all humans are complicated and contradictory But if TR is your ideal president it s worth thinking about whether or not there should be a presidency if having one person in charge of a country especially a large one is actually sensible at all Because if perhaps the most well read and intellectually curious president in US history can be this flawed a person perhaps there is no hope for any president to be good in the moral senseI think this book is for people who ve read shorter biographies of TR and want to know It is not for anyone just wanting a summary or knowledge about his place in US history
