Woodrow Wilson's contribution to American foreign policy is well known, but his role in the development of American political thought and institutions is less recognized.

This collection makes available in a single volume the most relevant political speeches and writings of this important American leader. It will serve students and scholars as both useful teaching tool and invaluable reference source on the twenty-eighth president of the United States.
