    - Served as the 13th president of Princeton University - Earned Ph.D. in political science from Johns Hopkins University, completing a dissertation titled Congressional Government: A Study in American Politics. Wilson was born in in Staunton, Virginia (and named Thomas Woodrow Wilson). It substituted for older considerations of the balance of power a mistaken faith in the new League of Nations. It abandoned the tested principles of diplomacy which had limited warfare in Europe during the nineteenth century for untried, idealistic arrangements which led to world war within a generation.

    This remarkable work of scholarship addresses the difficulties inherent in the American Constitution's separation of legislative and executive powers. In his first book, Wilson argues that in the years following the Civil War, the legislature received unfair advantages from the system of checks and balances, threatening the effectiveness of the constitutionally mandated separation of powers. Of all the new books about him, none can match in basic importance the one excerpted here, The Ordeal of Woodrow Wilson, by Herbert for Wilson himself, who wrote a biography of Washington, no other President of the United States has written a book about another.
