"Brother Woodrow" : a memoir of Woodrow Wilson by Stockton Axson( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memoir of Woodrow Wilson is a long-neglected treasure, full of the candid and perceptive observations of Wilson's brother-in-law and close friend, Stockton Axson. A charming and talented scholar of English literature, Axson became one of the few people in whom the reticent Wilson confided freely. Axson and Wilson met in 1884, when Wilson was courting Axson's sister Ellen, while Axson was still a schoolboy. The friendship of the two men ended only with the president's death in 1924. Axson's fondness for his mentor, "Brother Woodrow," pervades this account, but he is frank in his analysis of Wilson's flaws. As one of only a few personal memoirs of Wilson, this book offers a uniquely intimate view of the "human side" of the introverted president - and a sensitive evocation of the social life of a bygone era. Axson begins with memories of Wilson's father and of Wilson's life as a young man, including his engagement and marriage to Ellen Axson and his teaching posts at Bryn Mawr College and Wesleyan University. Wilson then taught for twelve years at Princeton University before his accession to its presidency. Axson also taught there during this period, and noticed that the social distinctions among students were becoming more pronounced, and that undergraduate "eating clubs" were increasing in number. The eating clubs became an issue when Wilson did become president. His proposed "quad system" threatened their privileges, and later the location of the graduate college also caused a storm of controversy. Axsons bachelor quarters were often a meeting place for the "Wilson faction" during this tumultuous period. His lucid analysis of Wilson's successes and failures as Princeton's president is one of the highlights of the book - and probably the best record of these years of Wilson's life. The book ends with a look behind the scenes of Wilson's gubernatorial and presidential career and an analysis of the growing complexity of his personality. "It is Uncle Joseph [Wilson's father] in him," observed one relative, of Wilson's seeming rigidity. From the standpoint of a loving family member, Axson offers a penetrating but sympathetic report on how Wilson changed as he bore the terrible burdens of World War I and its aftermath

America's Civil War by Brooks D Simpson( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Such is the continuing volume of work on the Civil War that we are regularly in need of an authoritative and accessible brief synthesis to keep us up to date with this endlessly fascinating subject. Brooks Simpson meets that need for the 1990s in America's Civil War, a wonderful feat of compression in which he addresses all the great issues of the war in 200 pages of clear and readable prose. Rightly, he puts the military history of the conflict at the center of the picture, but he excels in relating the drama of the war itself to the

The real Woodrow Wilson : an interview with Arthur S. Link, editor of the Wilson papers by James Robert Carroll( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Link makes clear, Wilson's defeat on the League was rooted not in intransigent idealism but in well-hidden medical calamities that came upon him when he most needed his strength and skills. On this unfortunate happenstance of nature was built the future catastrophes and global political upheavals of the rest of the Twentieth Century."--Jacket
