Wilson's visionary temperament and quick-paced leadership made him a uniquely articulate champion of the most essential American values. His policies, perhaps more so than any other president in this century, have shaped the world today. In this comprehensive biography, Kendrick Clements examines the brilliant successes as well as the failures of Wilson's public career as professor, president of Princeton University, governor of New Jersey, and president. Tempering the impression of Wilson as a stiff moralist, Mr. Clements reveals fascinating details of his periodic bouts of depression. But the recurrent themes of this balanced and engrossing portrait are Wilson's deep idealism and his drive for leadership. “The best available one-volume biography of our twenty-eighth president.”―Nicholas C. Burckel, History. “Woodrow Wilson: World Statesman deserves to be widely read...Clements displays a keen eye for anecdote and for telling quotations. He shows excellent judgment in evaluating varying interpretations of events and is not afraid to offer opinions of his own...The book is clearly written and well-paced.”―John A. Garraty, Journal of American History. “An engaging and useful book...a balanced treatment of Wilson's strengths and weaknesses, his triumphs and failures.”―Presidential Studies Quarterly.

Kendrick A. Clements is professor of history at the University of South Carolina. He has also written William Jennings Bryan and has edited James F. Byrnes and the Origins of the Cold War.From School Library Journal:
YA A well documented and summarized history in which Clements gives the background for and the moral reasons on which Wilson based his decisions. This easily read and understood book presents Wilson as the first president to hold office once most Americans had become aware of their nation's global reach. Wilson, like those who followed him, struggled to balance the protection of national interests, the rights of other peoples, and the promotion of national ideals in a world being radically transformed by war, revolution, and nationalism. This is a brief but excellent book about the period and about the complicated, far-sighted president who tried to establish the first world government, The League of Nations.
