    “Woodrow Wilson American Prophet” and “Woodrow Wilson World Prophet” constitute Arthur Walworth’s two volume Pulitzer Prize winning series on Wilson Both volumes were published in 1958 and they are often sold together as one document Walworth was a graduate of Yale and worked at Houghton Mifflin before becoming an author He died in 2005 at the age of 101Walworth apparently undertook the mission to complete a biography of Woodrow Wilson at the behest of Harvard professor Arthur Schlesinger Sr When completed after a decade of research by Walworth this biography represented the most substantial effort on Wilson since Ray Stannard Baker completed an eight volume study of Wilson in 1939The first volume “American Prophet” follows Wilson from childhood to the third year of his presidency while the second volumes follows the build up to World War I Wilson’s reluctant engagement in the global conflict and his efforts at ensuring an enduring peace Wilson’s post presidency was covered efficiently in about a dozen pages but effectivelyThe earliest impression this biography offers is one of reverence – not for Wilson himself which the author may have intended but for the historical value of the biography itself The painstaking work Walworth undertook to meticulously reassemble Wilson’s life is obvious And Walworth’s portrayal of Wilson while generally flattering also exposes many of his flawsThree sections of the biography stand out The lengthy review of Wilson’s tenure as Princeton’s president is fascinating and may provide the most insight into Wilson’s character The discussion relating to Wilson’s deliberations as he assembled his presidential cabinet proves eually compelling And the numerous pages devoted to Wilson’s peace related efforts are excellentHowever much about this biography fails to meet a modern non academic reader’s expectations One thing is immediately obvious to the reader this is not fluid descriptive prose written with a contemporary audience in mind Instead it is relatively “old school” scholarly and stiff detailed and dry Few chapters are so tantalizing that the reader is tempted to skip a meal in order to push further aheadMore importantly this often seems less a biography of Wilson than a history text which happens to focus on the world as seen from Wilson’s perspective And while Walworth carefully documents the important historical events that penetrated Wilson’s political sphere there seldom seems an appreciation for – or an examination of – broader historical contextWalworth’s coverage is appropriately reflective of the fact that Wilson’s presidency was dominated by events relating to World War I But there is scant evidence Wilson possessed a domestic policy agenda at all And even in the global sphere the discussion of war is so narrowly focused on Wilson that one never gets any sense of the war’s horror or enormous human cost; it is presented as little than an academic conceptFinally Walworth fails to convey to the reader a sense of who Wilson really was Family members are mentioned in passing but never become important figures in the drama There is little mention of his closest friends and even his important political allies such as Colonel House generally linger in the shadows And Mary Hulbert Peck with whom Wilson is rud to have had an affair appears only long enough to be recognized as a personal muse rather than a possible romantic interestOverall Arthur Walworth’s two volume biography of Woodrow Wilson is a carefully crafted and remarkably detailed recitation of Wilson’s life Unfortunately it proves too dry and academic for most readers and provides little insight into Wilson himself or his family And while it is often enlightening it is also freuently exhausting and tediousOverall rating 3 stars

    I first read Walworth's 2 volume Wilson before I read Berg's recent Wilson 2006 I would recommend the latter It is far dimensional and I came away with a initimate knowledge of the subject But this book does have its commendable ualities For one Walworth actually interviewed those who knew Wilson giving him detail and insight on some matters But I also felt as if Walworth glossed over the racial issues which for Wilson is not something you can ignore unless you are so blindly worshipful you refuse to see the dirt on your subject's clothes It's not that Walworth doesn't mention them; he just doesn't go into great detail I learned far about those issues in Berg's book For instance Walworth hardly mentions the Brith of the Nation screening at the White House whereas Berg dives into the background and the subseuent events which are NOT what is presented in most circles Wilson didn't know the content of the movie and only screened it at the behest of an acuaintance from his years at John Hopkins He sat silently through the screening and released a statement afterward that condemned the KKK and lynching All this information is available through a cursory glance at Wikipedia Wilson isn't blameless on race relations since he certainly permitted the segregations of the departments which set blacks back decades Wilson himself certainly imbibed the southern view of the inferiority of blacks But that shouldn't reuire a presentation of history I mention that story partly to set the record straight and partly to illustrate the detail in Berg's book but lacking in Walworth's American Prophet and volume II World Prophet That being said I also found other uotes and stories in Walworth's book not present in Bergs Walworth's 2 volumes are 1000 pages Berg's about 700 For instance Walworth has a uote from Wilson saying he ran in 1916 because that man former Sec of State William Jennings Bryan cannot be president A part from Bryan's pacifism Wilson found Bryan not a very good manager or politician Bryan was one hell of an orator but that was about itI don't regret reading the Walworth books In fact I'm glad I read them first before Berg's Together I immersed myself in Wilson probably than one person should But if you want to read a book on Woodrow Wilson go for Berg's You won't regret it

    There is a hidden reward in reading well researched and well written history One finds out that things in 1917 were not dramatically different than things are today The costumes and slang may differ but as Wilson himself said government has been owned by a select wealthy few since Andrew Jackson was president Wilson was a man who not only understood his era but he also had a great vision for the future
