The World Remade

Woodrow Wilson took his country to war in 1917, despite having won re-election the previous year, running on the campaign slogan: “He kept us out of war.” America went to war neither for defense of the country nor for territorial gain, yet the results of this war transformed America forever. When the United States entered the War, it was the youngest of the major powers and militarily the weakest by far. On November 11, 1918, when the fighting stopped, the United States was not only the richest country on earth, but the mightiest. Why Wilson took America to war and how the results of his action fundamentally changed the nation and the world is the story told in G.J. Meyer’s The World Remade: America in World War I (Random House, 2016). As Meyer engages the reader in his narrative of one of the most significant eras of our history, it becomes evident that the complexities of Wilson the man — and the Wilson presidency — have become interwoven in the complexities of the country itself. Join us on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice to take a fresh look at the Great War.
