The Four Freedoms

Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Evolution of an American Idea

Edited by Jeffrey A. Engel

  • Traces the evolution of "freedom" from 1941 to the present, showing how the term's meaning and political importance has evolved over time.
  • Includes essays by top scholars, including a photo essay on visual representations of the Four Freedoms.
  • The freedoms Americans fought for in World War II are not necessarily the same espoused by politicians today.
