9780061834349: Theodore Roosevelt's History of the United States: His Own Words, Selected and Arranged by Daniel Ruddy

“A splendid piece of work.”
— Edmund Morris

In a unique project, author Daniel Ruddy has carefully extracted Teddy Roosevelt’s most relevant and telling comments—from letters, books, speeches, and other sources—and organized them to form a fairly full, always colorful, and highly opinionated history of the United States up to 1919 (the year TR died). With a preface by Theodore Rex author Edmund Morris.

From the Back Cover:

An astute observer of history, Theodore Roosevelt was a hanging judge who did not hesitate to render harsh verdicts about leaders and events from America's past. His razor-sharp opinions cut to the core, capturing the essence of obscure and prominent figures alike. Roosevelt's ideas about the nation's early days and his own times can be found sprinkled throughout his voluminous writings. Now these "pearls of thought" (as one of his book reviewers described them in 1888) have been pulled together into one volume by Daniel Ruddy, providing readers with Roosevelt's unique view of American history from the Revolution to the beginning of the twentieth century.

What emerges from these pages reveals as much about Roosevelt as it does about the United States. This colorful compendium offers a wonderful, often unexpected view of both American history and one of the country's most energetic, brilliant, and entertaining leaders.

About the Author:

Daniel Ruddy grew up on Long Island, New York, where a childhood trip to Roosevelt's home, Sagamore Hill, triggered a lifelong interest in Theodore Roosevelt. A marketing consultant for Fortune 500 companies, Ruddy holds a master's degree in international relations from the London School of Economics.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Theodore Roosevelt s ideas about the nation s past and his own times can be found sprinkled throughout his voluminous writings, but these pearls of thought (as one of his book reviewers described them in 1888) have never before been pulled together in one volume. Now, through the nimble editing of Daniel Ruddy, Theodore Roosevelt s History of the United States provides readers with Roosevelt s unique view of American history from the Revolution to the early twentieth century. An astute historical observer, Roosevelt was a hanging judge who did not hesitate to render harsh verdicts about leaders and events from America s past. His razor-sharp opinions cut to the core, capturing the essence of obscure and prominent figures alike: Andrew Jackson was not more than half civilized; John Tyler a politician of monumental littleness; and, William McKinley had no more backbone than a chocolate eclair. Roosevelt had no hesitation about criticizing his contemporaries, either, especially Woodrow Wilson, who he believed was rotten through and through. What emerges from these pages is, of course, as revealing about Roosevelt as it is about the Unites States; it s a wonderful new angle on both American history and on one of the country s most energetic, brilliant and entertaining men.
