The Political Thought of Woodrow Wilson 1875-1910 - Niels Aage Thorsen

Princeton University Press, 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “Niels Thorsen argues that Woodrow Wilson was one of America’s most important political scientists. Focusing on the period from Wilson’s early years until he was elected governor of New Jersey, this work shows why he deserves a prominent place in the history of American political thought, even apart from his later attainments in the political arena. His book Congressional Government, his seminal article “The Study of Public Administration”, and his textbook The State were important contributions during the formative years of academic political science in America. In contrast to those who propose psychological explanations of Wilson’s early interest in political problems, Thorsen contends that the crisis of the election of 1876 against the backdrop of the Civil War was decisive in turning Wilson’s attention to political ideas.
