Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Theodore Roosevelt is among the most popular American presidents. He was the first to tackle the trusts and advocate federal control of the economy and government protection of the underprivileged, and the first really environmentally-conscious chief executive, whose conservation policies, by today’s standards, seems truly insightful.

Most episodes of Theodore Roosevelt’s eventful life and career have been thoroughly studied by researchers; yet, A Companion to Theodore Roosevelt is the first comprehensive anthology to encompass Roosevelt as whole, highlighting both his multi-faceted personality and his skilled diplomacy. It provides background and interpretive reading for the non-specialist while also addressing the needs of scholars seeking in-depth knowledge of the 26th president.

A Companion to Theodore Roosevelt revitalizes and internationalizes scholarship on Roosevelt with contributions from both sides of the Atlantic, not only by some of the established Roosevelt specialists and many other respected scholars, but also by a new generation of historians. The result is a fresh and extensive historiographical exploration of Roosevelt’s life and ideas, his political career and achievements, and his legacies.
