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 and a thinker who prized action more than words (but who wrote fine books himself). He was also , writes Auchincloss, an extraordinary 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."
