Synopsis:
Theodore Rex is the story—never fully told before—of Theodore Roosevelt’s two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A hundred years before the catastrophe of September 11, 2001, “TR” succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with his superhuman energy, charm, and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his most historic achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, and his monument millions of acres of protected parks and forest. Theodore Rex ends with TR leaving office, still only fifty years old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents.

Review:
In this lively biography, Edmund Morris returns to the gifted, energetic, and thoroughly controversial man whom the novelist Henry James called "King Theodore." In his two terms as president of the United States, Roosevelt forged an American empire, and he behaved as if it was his destiny. In this sequel to his Pulitzer Prize-winning biography The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Morris charts Roosevelt's accomplishments: the acquisition of the Panama Canal and the Philippines, the creation of national parks and monuments, and more. "Collaring Capital and Labor in either hand," Morris writes, Roosevelt made few friends, but he usually got what he wanted--and earned an enduring place in history.

Morris combines a fine command of the era's big issues with an appreciation for the daily minutiae involved in governing a nation. Less controversially inventive, but no less readable, than the Ronald Reagan biography Dutch, Theodore Rex gives readers new reason both to admire and fault an American phenomenon. --Gregory McNamee

Review

Review:
“In Edmund Morris, a great president has found a great biographer. . . . Every bit as much a masterpiece of biographical writing as The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, which won the Pulitzer Prize.” — The Washington Post

“As a literary work on Theodore Roosevelt, it is unlikely ever to be surpassed. It is one of the great histories of the American presidency, worthy of being on a shelf alongside Henry Adams’s volumes on Jefferson and Madison.” — Times Literary Supplement

“Take a deep breath and dive into Theodore Rex, Edmund Morris’s sequel to his 1979 masterpiece, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt. . . . He writes with a breezy verve that makes the pages fly.” — The New York Times Book Review

“A shining portrait of a presciently modern political genius maneuvering in a gilded age of wealth, optimism, excess and American global ascension.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“Roosevelt is a biographer’s dream, an epic character not out of place in an adventure novel." — The Christian Science Monitor

Book Description: Random House. 1 Paperback(s), 2001. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of the 2002 Los Angeles Times Book Award for Biography) Following the new president Theodore "TR" Roosevelt as he comes down from Mount Marcy, New York, to take his emergency oath of office in Buffalo, Edmund Morris begins this second volume of his Pulitzer Prize–winning biographical trilogy with TR's journey to Washington, while the assassinated President McKinley rides behind him like a ghost of the 19th century. Traveling through a succession of haunting landscapes, TR encounters harbingers of all the major issues of the new century, including imperialism, industrialism, conservation, immigration, labor, and race. Theodore Rex (the title is taken from a quip by Henry James) tells the story of the following seven-and-a-half years, during which TR entertains, infuriates, amuses, strong-arms, and seduces the body politic into entering a new century."In Edmund Morris, a great president has found a great biographer.
