Theodore Rex is the story—never fully told before—of Theodore Roosevelt’s two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A hundred years before the catastrophe of September 11, 2001, “TR” succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with his superhuman energy, charm, and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his most historic achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, and his monument millions of acres of protected parks and forest. Theodore Rex ends with TR leaving office, still only fifty years old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Noch heute scheiden sich die Geister an dem legendären Monarchen. Einigkeit herrscht in Bezug auf das große Interesse an seiner Person. Doch was ist es, das ihn so faszinierend macht? Anhand persönlicher Aussagen von Prominenten aus Geschichte und Gegenwart erzählt Tom Goeller die Biographie einer der schillernsten Figuren europäischer Geschichte. Mit Friedrich dem Großen (1712-1786) stieg Preußen in den Kreis der bedeutenden Mächte Europas auf. Obwohl Philosoph, führte er nach eigenen Angaben Kriege »aus Übermut«. Henry Kissinger bescheinigt ihm »skrupellose Diplomatie«. In der DDR 1950 vom Sockel gestürzt, befahl Erich Honecker 1980 seine Rehabilitation. Richard von Weizsäcker schwärmt von Friedrichs »einsamen Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Macht und Geist, die zu den kostbarsten Gütern deutscher Geschichte gehören«. Tom Goeller lässt den »Alten Fritz« in einem neuen Licht lebendig werden, indem er historische Zeugnisse neu interpretiert und Prominente über die Bedeutung dieses Königs für die Gegenwart befragt.

Between the 1880s and 1910s, thousands of African Americans passed civil service exams and became employed in the executive offices of the federal government. However, by 1920, promotions to well-paying federal jobs had nearly vanished for black workers. Eric S. Yellin argues that the Wilson administration's successful 1913 drive to segregate the federal government was a pivotal episode in the age of progressive politics. Yellin investigates how the enactment of this policy, based on Progressives' demands for whiteness in government, imposed a color line on American opportunity and implicated Washington in the economic limitation of African Americans for decades to come. Using vivid accounts of the struggles and protests of African American government employees, Yellin reveals the racism at the heart of the era's reform politics. He illuminates the nineteenth-century world of black professional labor and social mobility in Washington, D.C., and uncovers the Wilson administration's progressive justifications for unraveling that world. From the hopeful days following emancipation to the white-supremacist "normalcy" of the 1920s, Yellin traces the competing political ideas, politicians, and ordinary government workers who created "federal segregation."

Beginning with former president Theodore Roosevelt’s return in 1910 from his African safari, Chace brilliantly unfolds a dazzling political circus that featured four extraordinary candidates. When Roosevelt failed to defeat his chosen successor, William Howard Taft, for the Republican nomination, he ran as a radical reformer on the Bull Moose ticket. Meanwhile, Woodrow Wilson, the ex-president of Princeton, astonished everyone by seizing the Democratic nomination from the bosses who had made him New Jersey’s governor. Most revealing of the reformist spirit sweeping the land was the charismatic socialist Eugene Debs, who polled an unprecedented one million votes. Wilson’s “accidental” election had lasting impact on America and the world. The broken friendship between Taft and TR inflicted wounds on the Republican Party that have never healed, and the party passed into the hands of a conservative ascendancy that reached its fullness under Reagan and George W. Bush. Wilson’s victory imbued the Democratic Party with a progressive idealism later incarnated in FDR, Truman, and LBJ. 1912 changed America.
