In the first two decades of the 20th century, America stood poised to dominate the world economically and geopolitically--a fact underscore by the key role the United States played in World War I. During this time, three Americans rose to prominence, seeking to transform their country so it could cope with the challenges of a new age: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jane Addams. In this episode, we discuss their competing progressive agendas with Neil Lanctot, author of The Approaching Storm: Roosevelt, Wilson, Addams, and Their Clash over America's Future.
