Book cover

Woodrow Wilson's Administration and Achievements by Frank B. Lord is a comprehensive and insightful account detailing the impactful presidency of Woodrow Wilson. Lord's meticulous research and extensive knowledge of the subject matter make this book an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding the historical significance of Wilson's time in office.

One of the book's greatest strengths lies in Lord's ability to provide a balanced analysis of Wilson's presidency. He not only highlights Wilson's numerous achievements but also carefully examines the challenges and setbacks faced during his administration. Lord presents an in-depth exploration of Wilson's progressive policies, such as the introduction of the Federal Reserve System, the establishment of the Federal Trade Commission, and the enactment of the Clayton Antitrust Act. These reforms, which aimed to regulate corporate power and promote fairness in the economy, are thoroughly discussed and evaluated within the context of their lasting impact on American society.

Moreover, Lord delves into the foreign policy initiatives of Wilson's administration, with a particular focus on his role in shaping the nation's involvement in World War I. The complexities of Wilson's decision-making process, his idealistic vision for a post-war world, and his efforts to establish the League of Nations are excellently analyzed. Lord not only provides a detailed account of Wilson's negotiations and diplomacy but also explores the public reception and political challenges faced by the president during this critical period.

Lord's writing style is engaging and accessible, enriched by an abundance of primary sources and well-documented citations. The book maintains a smooth narrative flow, enabling readers to comfortably navigate through the historical events and understand their broader significance. Lord's depth of research is evident in the inclusion of the opinions and viewpoints of various historians, allowing readers to gain a comprehensive understanding of Wilson's accomplishments and controversies.

While Woodrow Wilson's Administration and Achievements is undoubtedly a well-researched and enlightening book, it should be noted that some readers who are less academically inclined might find certain sections overly detailed or dense. Additionally, the singular focus on Wilson as the central figure in this book may leave readers desiring a more comprehensive understanding of the broader political climate of the time.

In conclusion, Frank B. Lord's Woodrow Wilson's Administration and Achievements is an essential read for history enthusiasts, scholars, and anyone interested in gaining a nuanced understanding of the impact of Woodrow Wilson's presidency. Lord's meticulous research, balanced analysis, and engaging writing style make this book a valuable addition to the study of American history. Whether one is already familiar with Wilson's presidency or approaching the topic for the first time, this book provides a well-rounded and thought-provoking examination of one of America's most influential presidents.

Patriotism consists in some very practical things practical in that they belong to the life of every day, that they wear no extraordinary distinction about them, that they are connected with commonplace duty. The way to be patriotic in America is not only to love America, but to love the duty that lies nearest to our hand and know that in performing it we are serving our country. From President Wilson's Address at Independence Hall, Philadelphia, July 14, 1914.
