Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

An esteemed writer and critic paints a deeply insightful portrait of Woodrow Wilson, one of the greatest political masterminds of a century.

About the Author

Louis Auchincloss is current president of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a highly acclaimed novelist, literary critic, and historian.
