Wilson by A. Scott Berg( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and German and held by 2,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred years after his inauguration, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, and one of the most enigmatic. And now, after more than a decade of research and writing, the author has completed a personal and penetrating biography about the 28th President. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of documents in the Wilson Archives, the author was the first biographer to gain access to two recently discovered caches of papers belonging to those close to Wilson. From this material, he was able to add countless details, even several unknown events, that fill in missing pieces of Wilson's character and cast new light on his entire life. From the scholar-President who ushered the country through its first great world war to the man of intense passion and turbulence, from the idealist determined to make the world safe for democracy to the stroke-crippled leader whose incapacity and the subterfuges around it were among the century's greatest secrets, the result is an intimate portrait written with a particularly contemporary point of view. A book at once magisterial and deeply emotional about the whole of Wilson's life, accomplishments, and failings. This is not just Wilson the icon but Wilson the man. -- From publisher's web site

9 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A. Scott Berg's big, rich, graceful biography of Sam Golden brings the movie book to a new rarified plateau ... The book proves worthy of what would be, in context, the highest praise of all: It has "The Goldwyn touch."--The Washington post book world. In an adventure that would have played well in one of his own films, Schmuel Goldfish left the Warsaw ghetto in 1895 ... He walked 300 miles to the Oder Coderr, where he paid someone to row him across, smuggling him out the Russian empire into Germany, past border patrols to another long, walk to Hamburg. The gleam in his eye was America. "A far-aways country, a vision of paradise." Schmuel Goldfisz became Samuel Goldwyn, one of the producers who created the Hollywood film industry. His pictures, notably Stella Dallas, Wuthering heights, and The best years of our lives, were famous for "the Goldwyn touch." And Goldwyn himself was one of the most colorful of the vivid personalities of his time
