Winner of the Bancroft Prize, this incisive book presents an integrated analysis of the theory and practice of Woodrow Wilson's foreign policy from 1917 to 1919.
"[Mr. Levin] has produced his own historical synthesis based upon far-ranging research in original and secondary sources. Better still, the author has described brilliantly and perceptively both the dynamics and the long-range purposes of Wilson's foreign policies....What else can one say about the result except that it is judicious, balanced, and as detached as it is humanly possible to be?"--Arthur S. Link, The New York Times Book Review
"An exceptionally thoughtful book about the formation of a modern American foreign policy"--World Affairs
"An important book. Levin succeeds admirably in analyzing Wilson's foreign policy principles, objectives, and actions against the background of revolutionary changes both at home and abroad."--Louis L. Gerson, Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science
