Annotation:
In this complex and sympathetic biography of President Woodrow Wilson, John Milton Cooper Jr. reveals a man driven by a sense of practical, democratic, liberal, and Christian righteousness who viewed himself as an exemplar of these values--despite his many prejudices and grudges. The son of a Presbyterian minister, Wilson taught as a professor and was the president of Princeton University before becoming president of the United States in 1912, and he brought an unique blend of faith and intellectualism to the office. Though a great believer in diplomacy and neutrality--his campaign slogan for re-election was "He kept us out of the war"--Wilson also believed that American democracy and values would, and should, spread across the world. An intriguing blend of idealist, realist, and pragmatist, Wilson's legacy and personality is explored in marvelous depth in Cooper's important biography.

Praise

"John Milton Cooper Jr.'s much-anticipated biography finally gives Wilson his due. The preeminent living historian of Wilson and his era, Cooper has studied the man and his times for decades. Having written several books about aspects of Wilson's career, he now presents us with his magnum opus. This book is deeply, indeed exhaustively researched, and beautifully, often movingly narrated. It is far and away the best biography of the 28th president we have, and as such it is unlikely to be surpassed." - Erez Manela 11/29/2009
