More useful in understanding the political scene today than the news and commentary out this morning is the essay by Sidney Milkis on the election that made Woodrow Wilson president, from the winter issue of the Claremont Review of Books: “Why the election of 1912 changed America.” To round out the picture, consider also from the same issue Frederick Kagan’s timely review of two new books on foreign policy issues with a Wilsonian inflection, “Wilson’s new world disorder,” and the note by Ronald Pestritto on the restoration to print of Wilson’s Constitutional Government in the United States, “Reading Wilson.”
