    Review quote
    "Cooper's much-anticipated biography finally gives Wilson his due. The preeminent living historian of Wilson and his era, Cooper has studied the man an his times for decades . . . he now presents us with his magnum opus. The book is deeply, indeed exhaustively researched, and beautifully, often movingly narrated. It is far and away the best biography of the 28th president we have, and as such it is unlikely to be surpassed." --"Boston Globe" "Cooper's monumental new biography seeks to revive Wilson for the 21st century--not simply to narrate a presidential life, but to explain why he deserves our national esteem....An admiring and engaging work of presidential revisionism. . . .

His is a nuanced portrait of the 28th president. . . . It also offers lessons for another intellectual professor-turned-president, who combines principle with pragmatism. He, Wilson, and Teddy Roosevelt are the only presidents to receive a Nobel Peace Prize while still in office." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer" "A noted Woodrow Wilson expert comprehensively examines the life and career of America's 28th president. . . . Cooper exhibits complete command of his materials, a sure knowledge of the man and a nuanced understanding of a presidency almost Shakespearean in its dimensions." --"Kirkus" (Starred review) "[O]ur leading Wilson authority . . . offers a comprehensive, felicitously written biography aimed at scholars but accessible to general readers, too. . . . He admir
