The Roosevelts : An Intimate History( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roosevelts: An Intimate History chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, 14 hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the

Breaking the heart of the world : Woodrow Wilson and the fight for the League of Nations by John Milton Cooper( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fight over the League of Nations at the end of World War I was one of the great political debates of the American twentieth century. President Woodrow Wilson, himself a key architect of the League, was uncompromising in his belief that the United States would rise to a position of leadership in the peaceful union of states that he had envisaged. A masterful politician and distinguished theorist, Wilson was unprepared for the persuasiveness of his opponents and the potency of their argument. Though he struggled tirelessly in the summer of 1919 to drum popular and political support for the League, his body could not keep pace: He suffered a disabling stroke in July. The United States Senate ultimately rejected membership in the League, and the League failed to realize its diplomatic potential. In this engaging narrative, John Cooper relates the story of Wilson's battle for the League with sympathy, accuracy, and a deep understanding of the times."--Jacket

Reconsidering Woodrow Wilson : progressivism, internationalism, war, and peace by Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reconsidering Woodrow Wilson reveals a person who was at once an international idealist, a structural reformer of the nation's economy, and a policy maker who was simultaneously accommodating, indifferent, resistant, and hostile to racial and gender reform. These essays were originally written for a celebration of Wilson's 150th birthday sponsored by the official national memorial to Wilson, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, in collaboration with the Woodrow Wilson House. That daylong symposium examined some of the most important and controversial areas of Wilson's political life and presidency."--Jacket
