Share Scott Berg on Woodrow Wilson

Event Details

For the second Richard Neustadt Annual Lecture, UCL-Institute of the Americas proudly hosts Pulitzer-Prize winning author A. Scott Berg, who has published a new biography of one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, and one of the most enigmatic.

This public lecture coincides with the publication of Wilson in the United Kingdom. Based on more than a decade of research and writing, the book has won widespread plaudits following its recent appearance in the US. In tonight’s talk, Scott Berg will share his insights on Wilson the man as well as Wilson the icon based on his investigation of hundreds of thousands of documents in the Wilson Archives and his unique access to two recently-discovered caches of papers belonging to those close to Wilson. From this material, Berg will share with the audience some of his new findings about Wilson’s character and life and place his accomplishments and failures in new perspective. This address will appeal to anyone interested in the making of twentieth-century America, the presidency, and US diplomacy in a crucial era of world politics, and, too, those more generally fascinated by the interplay of personality and politics and the role of individual leaders in history.
