About this product
- DescriptionWoodrow Wilson is often considered one of the greatest presidents in American history because, in the first two years of his presidency, he succeeded on many fronts. However, acclaimed author and historian Richard Striner w makes the case that a presidency that is too often idealized was full of missteps and failures that profoundly affected America's politics and people long after it ended. While other negative assessments of Wilson's leadership have been one-sided, Striner's critique-though undoubtedly scathing-is judicious, nuanced, and fair. With detailed description and accessible prose, Striner sheds light on how-as soon as America entered World War I-flaws of Wilson's were exposed as the pressure on his administration mounted. This book is a story of presidential failure, a chronicle of Woodrow Wilson's miscalculations in war, and a harrowing account of the process through which an intelligent American leader fell to pieces under a burden he could t bear.
- Author BiographyRichard Striner is professor of history at Washington College and the author of Lincoln's Way: How Six Great Presidents Created American Power (R&L 2010), a History Book Club selection, as well as Father Abraham: Lincoln's Relentless Struggle to End Slavery.
