The real Woodrow Wilson

Ken Masugi of The Remedy points out R.J. Pestritto’s outstanding review of a biography of Woodrow Wilson for the Claremont Review of Books: “The perils of progress.” In the review, Pestritto observes, “Wilson made many of his critiques of American constitutionalism during his prolific academic career, when he wrote extensively on American government and political theory. Yet these critiques are almost entirely ignored in the conventional histories…” Pestritto himself has now filled the vacuum in Wilson studies with his new book Woodrow Wilson and the Roots of Modern Liberalism.
