Read full description of the books:
The historical perspective is enlightening. The fear of communism permeates the book. Her mention of the misuse of the land by the Arabs and the inferred correct use by the Israelis that occupied the land was very disheartening. Her mention of how Western Israeli was and how this put her at ease was very telling.
Apparently while in India, Mrs. Roosevelt made some deragatory comments against communism in her speeches and talks. Not surprisingly while visiting one university, Mrs. Roosevelt received a letter from multiple student organizations describing how her comments against communism were seen as disrespectful and out of place and that the people of India were capable of making their own decisions without foreigners intervening in affairs. They mentioned that many prominent individuals from a variety of countries had visited India without slandering and vilifying other political trends/ideas. they mention that an American ambassador had also interfered by making similar comments. Mrs. Roosevelt comments that the comments in the letter are "the usual allegations which one finds in Communist propaganda". Hm...really?
Overall, the book was interesting as Mrs. Roosevelt discusses the places and people she meets and the book contains many photos of her travels.
Did you know that Teddy Roosevelt was her uncle and that she and FDR were 5th cousins? (not included in the book)
She apparently also drastically changed the role of a presidential spouse by becoming a diplomat and activist.

Roosevelt, as well as taking a prominent role as an advocate for civil rights. After her husband's death in 1945, she continued to be an internationally prominent author and speaker for the New Deal coalition.
