Theodore Roosevelt, American politician : an assessment by David H Burton( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author draws on Roosevelt's life and the political history of the times, resulting in an analysis that is familiar to scholars as well as to the larger audience, that of historical readership. What is different here, however, is the application of the principles of decision-making theory both to decisions taken and mistakes made. Perhaps sterile in itself, the theory comes to life when used to objectify much of what is too often looked upon as the result of impulse in TR's conduct of affairs, in both his triumphs and his failures

Taft, Wilson, and world order by David H Burton( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taft and Wilson followed different callings, in public affairs and higher education, but each career in its own way contributed to their conviction that peace, not war, was possible to attain among the Great Powers. Taft's practical idealism grew out of his experiences as governor of the Philippines, Secretary of War, and the presidency itself, and it mated readily with the moral idealism of Wilson, the student of history, law, and government."
