Woodrow Wilson: Revolution, War, and Peace
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungArthur S. Link, currently engaged in collecting and publishing the Wilson papers, here edits a profile concerned with the search for Wilson's personality. He feels that Ray Stannard Baker in his official biography to a large degree imposed his own personality profile on Wilson, painted him "too good to be true - or human." To counter the aspect of the prim intellectual, these pieces, from Georgia boyhood, as a student at the University of Virginia, as a young teacher at Wesleyan (particularly engaging), as Princeton professor and President, New Jersey Governor and President of the United States, from people who knew him when - friends, students, colleagues, historians, his physician. Wilson emerges as a genuine human being, whose personal charm was as characteristic as his idealism. Wilson's contributions are also considered. A winning profile. (Kirkus Reviews)
