In examining the life of former Senator Robert A. Taft, this volume illuminates not only the history of the conservative opposition to liberal internationalism in the 1940s, but tells us much about the contest over America's proper place in the global economy. Through careful research, Wunderlin offers a fresh look at one of the most important Republican Party congressional leaders of the twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In 1957 the United States Senate named the late Republican Majority Leader Robert A. Taft as one of the five most outstanding members ever to serve in that body. Clarence Wunderlin has applied his unexcelled command of Taft's vast documentary record to produce an engaging biography amply confirming the continuing appropriateness of the Senate's mid-century judgment. -- Richard A. Baker, author of The Senate of the United States: A Bicentennial History
In this biography, Wunderlin, who is editor/project director of The Papers of Robert A. Taft, traces the career of this prominent Republican conservative. His 'civic nationalism' ideals and anti-New Deal positions are clearly relevant today. * Reference and Research Book News *
Wunderlin's account offers a useful contribution to scholarly literature by tracing the intellectual roots of Taft's political thought back to the nineteenth century. * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online *
Wunderlin presents a concise, balanced portrait of my grandfather's life, clarifying the strong connections between his coherent political philosophy and his many policy positions. I found the book both informative and enjoyable to read. -- Bob Taft, Governor of Ohio 1999-2007, University of Dayton instructor and DECA volunteer
