On the eve of his inauguration as President, Woodrow Wilson commented, It would be the irony of fate if my administration had to deal chiefly with foreign affairs. As America was drawn into the Great War in Europe, Wilson used his scholarship, his principles, and the political savvy of his advisers to overcome his ignorance of world affairs and lead the country out of isolationism. The product of his efforts — his vision of the United States as a nation uniquely suited for moral leadership by virtue of its democratic tradition — is a view of foreign policy that is still in place today.

Acclaimed historian and Pulitzer Prize finalist H. W. Brands offers a clear, well-informed, and timely account of Wilson's unusual route to the White House, his campaign against corporate interests, his struggles with rivals at home and allies abroad, and his decline in popularity and health following the rejection by Congress of his League of Nations. Wilson emerges as a fascinating man of great oratorical power, depth of thought, and purity of intention. Download and start listening now!

    " Very interesting account of the forces of unbridled capitalism in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Important subject, given how many people would love to take the country back there. "

    " This suffered from what the Korean War history I read a month ago suffered from, namely disjointed albeit interesting chapters. I will be reading more from this historian and am quite hopeful that a more focused subject area will yield a great book. "
