Terry Golway - Frank and Al: FDR, Al Smith, and the Unlikely Alliance That Created the Modern Democratic Party.

Author, journalist, and historian Terry Golway tackles politics again in his latest book - a meticulous look at two great progressive New York governors who both wanted to be president - but only one would be successful. The two men could not have been more different: Roosevelt, a scion of Protestant wealth and privilege from Hyde Park, New York, and Smith, an Irish-Catholic kid, who grew up in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge and matriculated at the Fulton Fish Market University while Roosevelt went to Harvard. Golway says their cooperation and collaboration shows there is hope for a country which is increasingly polarized in our own time.
