Theodore Roosevelt: Preacher of Righteousness

★★★☆☆

Review:

This is one of a bunch of recent biographies of Roosevelt—it focuses mostly on the intellectual products of his Presidency: imperialism, environmentalism, the Strenuous Life, etc. A pretty good introduction to Roosevelt’s thought and also a guide to where some of his funkier ideas came from. I extend this last project in Theodore Roosevelt and the Idea of the Strenuous Life (will post soon).

★★★☆☆
