Summary of Material:
Theodore Roosevelt was a man of many contradictions: a warrior who won the Nobel Peace prize, a wealthy man who
battled corporate greed, a thinker who prized action more than words (but who wrote fine books himself). He was also , writes
Auchincloss, an extrodianry leader, "a political idealist who had the wisdom to know that only by astute and well-considered
compromise in our legislative process could he hope to see enacted even a fraction of the social and military programs that he
deemed... essential to the welfare of his nation."
