His Lindbergh garnered a Pulitzer Prize for Biography and his life of legendary literary editor Maxwell Perkins won him a National Book Award' but with this narrative about scholar/politician/statesman Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), A. Scott Berg has found his most powerful subject. His mammoth, 832-page biography of the two-term president immerses us in the controversies and contradictions of a chief executive who was reelected on a banner of "He Kept Us Out of War" only to sink us into the bloody confrontations of World War I just months later. Drawing on hundreds of thousands of documents including two recently recovered caches, Berg presents a Wilson who not even his contemporaries fully knew. Certain to be one of the most discussed, reviewed, and popular books of the holiday season.
