About the Editor

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“DiNunio has done a spectacular job of revealing the intelligence and humanity of a man often clouded by legend.”
-Choice: Highly recommended,

“DiNunzio has weighted his selections toward Wilson's prepresidential career, making much of the book unique.”
-Library Journal


“DiNunzio suggests that Woodrow Wilson was the first and only scholar-president. Wilson remade Princeton University as a first-rate bastion of liberal-arts learning as its first layman president before serving as New Jersey governor and later ushering the nation through the Progressive Era and into World War I.”
