From the Publisher:
A portrait of a century's greatest political mastermind|| Our tw ent y-eighth president was, says Louis Auchincloss, "the greatest idealist who ever occupied the White House." Now, in Woodrow Wilson, Auchincloss sheds new light on Wilson's upbringing and career, from the grim determination that enabled him to overcome dyslexia to the skillful dance of isolationism and intervention in World War I to the intransigence that-despite his most cherished vision-caused the Senate's rejection of the League of Nations. From the dynamic figure whose ringing speeches hypnotized vast crowds, to the gentle voice reading poetry to his children, Auchincloss presents all the triumphs and the final tragic irony of this flawed apostle of world peace.
Author Bio
Louis Auchincloss
Raised in New York City, Louis Auchincloss was connected with many prominent families in the upper-class milieu in which his novels are set. (He was related to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by marriage.) Auchincloss went to Yale and the University of Virginia Law School, married in 1957, and had three sons. He served in World War II in intelligence and as a naval commander. For most of his adult life, in addition to writing novels, Auchincloss practiced law in New York. He is regarded as the primary fictional chronicler of a certain way of life--of the genteel, hyper-civilized, securely wealthy world that was written about, before him, by Edith Wharton, whom he considered one of his major inspirations as a writer. Auchincloss died at the age of 92 from complications of a stroke.
