Abstract

This essay reveals how President Woodrow Wilson's passion for international law slowly developed over several stages in his life from his professorship at Princeton to his presidency. By exploring Wilson's conversion from a skeptic of international law to one of its greatest proponents, the author shows how Wilson's world view shaped American foreign policy and the political landscape.
