Woodrow Wilson

September 24

“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

Sundays 10:10 — 10:55 a.m.
