An objective and very readable reconstruction of the 1919 peace negotiations, by a professor of history at Williams College. Dr. Birdsall feels that Woodrow Wilson was remarkably successful at Paris in imposing his own views in spite of the bitter fight waged against him and his ideals by most of the other delegates and by many of his own countrymen. The book closes with a call for the revival of Wilsonian principles.
