Woodrow Wilson

by Louis Auchincloss

Woodrow Wilson sheds new light on Wilson's upbringing and career, from the grim determination that enabled him to overcome dyslexia to the skillful dance of isolationism and intervention in World War I to the intransigence that--despite his most cherished vision--caused the Senate's rejection of the League of Nations. Here, from the dynamic figure whose ringing speeches hypnotized vast crowds to the gentle voice reading poetry aloud and the comic star of family skits and charades to the rising academic and president of Princeton who made the giant leap into politics are all the triumphs and final tragic irony of this flawed apostle of world peace. Our twenty-eighth president was, says Louis Auchincloss, "the greatest idealist who ever occupied the White House." And who better than Auchincloss, with his penchant for quirky personalities and fascination with fin-de-sicle society, to explore this complex persona?

Nuremberg Diary: Formerly Prison Psychologist at the Nuremberg Trial of the Nazi War Criminals

by Gustave M. Gilbert

In August 1945 Great Britain, France, the USSR and the United States established a tribunal at Nuremberg to try military and civilian leaders of the Nazi regime for the plotting of aggressive warfare, the extermination of civilian populations, the widespread use of slave labor, the looting of occupied countries, and the maltreatment and murder of prisoners of war. G.M. Gilbert was the prison psychologist before and during the Nuremberg trial. He had an unrivaled, firsthand opportunity to watch and question the Nazi war criminals.

Adultery and Other Diversions

by Tim Parks

In Adultery and Other Diversions, author Tim Parks gives his own intellect free rein to cartwheel and skylark among a variety of subjects from the dangerous allure of adultery to the creative power of rancor. With each essay, Parks begins by grounding himself and the reader in a concrete experience--a bus ride across Europe, for instance, or cleaning his daughter's room, or translating an Italian novel into English--then lets his mind loose to joyously observe, reflect, and comment on what it all means.

The Sixties: The Last Journal, 1960-1972

by Lewis M. Dabney Edmund O. Wilson

Edited by Wilson's biographer, this volume poignantly -- and defiantly -- records the final years of one of our foremost critics and writers, taking its place alongside his major works, including "To the Finland Station", "Patriotic Gore", "The Shores of Light, and Letters on Literature and Politics", as an enduring contribution to American culture. In "The Sixties" Wilson also struggles with his aging, as intellectual and personal curiosity contend against weakening physical powers, and flirtations that afford a sense of biological revival strain his relationship with his wife, Elena. He watches his children establishing their own lives and is aware of unfulfilled relationships with them. Yet, as he plunges into the contemporary scene of art, thought, and public affairs, the pull of his personal and cultural past is strengthened by the sense of his approaching end. Witnessing his own foibles and the ironies of human nature, expressing feeling more deeply than he often had in his journal, he writes his account of this decade with a concentration undiluted by other large-scale projects. The extraordinary personal record begun in another pivotal period in American life, with "The Twenties", comes to a fitting culmination in "The Sixties".
