She was the eldest child of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. Alice led an unconventional life. Her marriage to Representative Nicholas Longworth III, the 38th Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, was shaky, and her only child Paulina was allegedly a result of her affair with Senator William Edgar Borah. When her father took office following the assassination of President William McKinley, Jr. Alice became a celebrity and fashion icon at age 17, and at her social debut in 1902 she wore a gown of what was to become known as "Alice blue".

Newport, RI: Naval War College Press, 2002. Presumed First Edition, First printing of this issue. Wraps. , 121,  pages. Illustrations. Maps. Notes. Table. Cover illustration of Theodore Roosevelt. Cover has some wear and soiling, and rear corner 'dinged'. This issue has an article by Edmund Morris entitled "A Matter of Extreme Urgency" Theodore Roosevelt, Wilhelm II, and the Venezuela Crisis of 1902. The Venezuelan crisis of 1902 had all the ingredients to attract scholars: drama, contradictions, and mysteriously destroyed evidence. Only a century later, however, has the full extent of the episode become clear--through private diplomacy TR sustained the Monroe Doctrine, threatened war and averted it, and then remained silent about his triumph to spare the vanity of an emperor. Other articles are on American Primacy by Stephen Walt'; Are U.S. Forces Unprepared and Underfunded? by Lawrence J. Korb, and two articles on the Bay of Bengal, one by Andrew Selth on Burma and the other on India and its Navy by Vice Admiral Gulab Hiranandani of the Indian Navy (retired). Kissinger book reviewed.

Slight edge soiling. Pencil erasure residue on half-title page. John Milton Cooper, Jr. (born 1940) is an American historian, author, and educator. His specialization is late 19th- and early 20th-century American Diplomatic History. Cooper is Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His most recent book, Woodrow Wilson: A Biography, was published in 2009. It is described as "the first major biography of America’s twenty-eighth president in nearly two decades." The book was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography. Wilson and Roosevelt were fathers of opposing schools of domestic and foreign policy, but their conflict was much more complicated and ran far deeper than a clash between realism and idealism. The colossal figures who shaped the politics of industrial America emerge in full scale in this engrossing comparative biography. In both the depth and sophistication of intellect that they brought to politics and in the titanic conflict they waged with each other, Roosevelt and Wilson were, like Hamilton and Jefferson before them, the political architects for an entire century.
