“Woodrow Wilson, the Great War and the Fourth Estate”
Jim Startt, Professor and Author
Wilson’s years in the White House spanned the era of the First World War, a time of intense, often bitter, partisan politics in the U.S. Presenting highlights from his new book, Jim Startt discusses Wilson – press relations during the war and focus, in particular, on the perils of maintaining American neutrality until 1917, the American intervention into the war, and how Wilson’s quest for a new and just international order of nations fell victim to the forces of nationalism and political opportunism. Host: Mary Buchel and Linda Presto
