Theodore Roosevelt, American Politician: An Assessment
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1997 - 171 Seiten
This study of Theodore Roosevelt, politician, owes much to the conception of an American political tradition and to the people and events that gave it life, to political idea and historical reality. It proposes to distill from Roosevelt's mind and spirit, as well as from his words and his actions, an understanding of why any account of that tradition would suffer grievously, perhaps fatally, from a failure to give TR his due. The author analyzes TR's political thought and ways, assessing the importance of the purposes and practices found in the life of a working politician.
