This book does a good job presenting Wilson's ideas but it gives very little biographically. We are not told anything much about Wilson as a person. We learn almost zero about his family. This to my mind made the reading of the work far more interesting than it might be.
It also does not, as I understand it consider Wilson critically enough especially in his Lenin- worship and celebration of the Soviets' coming to power.
It does however show how rich, tough, and many- sided Wilson's mind was.
