Summary
"By the author of acclaimed biographies of Theodore Roosevelt and Henry Adams, a penetrating biography of one of the most high-minded, consequential, and controversial US presidents, Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924). The Moralist is a cautionary tale about the perils of moral vanity and American overreach in foreign affairs."--Provided by publisher
Summary
An in-depth portrait of the 28th President argues that controversial decisions by the Wilson administration established unprecedented levels of American overreach in foreign affairs, examining the challenges, leadership, failures and health setbacks that shaped the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 and founded the League of Nations
