Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A Companion to Woodrow Wilson shows how much can be learned from a conscientious bibliographic review. It is an impressive book that—through its best chap­ters—could teach valuable lessons to historians of many topics in addition to those studying Wilson.” (Journal of American History, 1 March 2014)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“This is an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to examine Wilson and the issues and events he dealt with. It gives comprehensive and incisive accounts of the many and conflicting views of this man and what he wrought.” - John M. Cooper, University of Wisconsin

“Congratulations to Ross Kennedy for this excellent volume on Woodrow Wilson. These original essays by both senior and junior scholars summarize current historiography and add new insights on all aspects of his life and legacy.  Anyone wanting to learn more about the president and his place in history should read this volume.” - Lloyd Ambrosius, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

"The present moment cries out for a reconsideration of Woodrow Wilson, who did so much to redefine U.S. politics and foreign policy.  This volume provides a useful guide to the sprawling Wilson literature, reminding us that so many of the issues he grappled with—war, peace, taxes, regulation, race—will never go away." - Glen Gendzel, San Jose State University

“This collection of essays offers an important reappraisal of the life, thought, and presidency of Woodrow Wilson.  A “must read” for students and scholars of twentieth-century U.S. and international history.” - Elizabeth McKillen, University of Maine
