History As Literature And Other Essays

Overview

The Greco-Roman world saw a civilization far more brilliant, far more varied and intense, than any that had gone before it, and one that affected a far larger share of the world's surface. For the first time there began to be something which at least foreshadowed a "world movement" in the sense that it affected a considerable portion of the world's surface and that it represented what was incomparably the most important of all that was ...

Overview

The Greco-Roman world saw a civilization far more brilliant, far more varied and intense, than any that had gone before it, and one that affected a far larger share of the world's surface. For the first time there began to be something which at least foreshadowed a "world movement" in the sense that it affected a considerable portion of the world's surface and that it represented what was incomparably the most important of all that was happening in world history at the time.
-from "The World Movement"

A man of prodigious and wide-ranging interests, Theodore Roosevelt-politician and soldier, naturalist and historian-was the youngest president in American history, ascending to the office when he was only 42... and with much vigorous life in him and influence to exert after he left the Oval Office, as this 1914 volume ably demonstrates.

In this collection of essays for various publications and addresses delivered before Oxford University, the University of Berlin, the Sorbonne, and the American Historical Association in the years after he left the White House, Roosevelt introduces us to his fascinating ideas on everything from world history and classic literature to the duties of citizens and the machinations of politics.

This is a striking look inside the inquisitive mind and vivacious spirit of one of the great American personalities.

Also available from Cosimo Classics: Roosevelt's America and the World War, Letters to His Children, A Book-Lover's Holidays in the Open, Through the Brazilian Wilderness and Papers on Natural History, Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail, The Strenuous Life: Essays and Addresses, and Historic Towns: New York

OF INTEREST TO: Roosevelt fans, students of the American presidency
