This book shows the strong influence of judgements made of Wilson by the British diplomatists during the early years of his national prominence (1912-1914) on the way the British dealt with Wilson at the Paris Peace Conference. It also shows the strong effect which practitioners of the so-called "Old Diplomacy" had on Lloyd George on this key issue of wartime and peace diplomacy. It shows that the British diplomatists viewed Wilson as a very successful American politician, but not as a prophet, or saviour. The religious imagery used by certain historians and more junior British diplomats, such as Harold Nicolson and John Maynard Keynes does not reflect the views of their more senior colleagues.
