New Woodrow Wilson Biography by Author Patricia O’Toole

Carl Buhler

Following Patricia O’Toole’s in-depth biography of American president Theodore Roosevelt, her latest book titled, The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made, examines the life of the progressive politician and his actions after World War I. The 600-page biography begins with background information about Wilson’s childhood during the Civil War and his early political career leading to his election as president in 1912. From there, the book highlights the general contradictions that would define Wilson’s presidency, including his push for international peace while upholding segregation in the US and launching military occupations in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. O’Toole also covers the severity of Wilson’s illness while he was in office and how the victories and failures of his administration helped shape American policy for decades.

The author, Carl Buhler, has almost three decades of experience in the United States Air Force. Carl Buhler is also an avid reader who enjoys general history topics and biographies of distinguished military and political leaders.
