This volume presents a crowded story. When Wilson entered the White House, China and Japan were on the agenda, revolution was flaming in Mexico, and Europe was on the verge of war. With the outbreak of war in 1914, the struggle for neutrality and preparedness began. The book includes lively portraits of a young FDR, a great Bryan, a grand old Admiral Dewey, and inexplicable Lodge, and a memorable Edison.

Originally published in 1944.
