John Cooper, the author of a biography of Woodrow Wilson; With Respect 02/23/20

John’s guest this week is John Cooper, the author of a fascinating biography of Woodrow Wilson, the US President who “kept us out of” and then “led us through” World War I. A figure of broad genius, with hidden loves and visions of a world at peace, which shattered on the rocks of Realpolitik and the “peace” he let slip through his hands.
