Only two candidates played a significant role in the four-way presidential campaign of 1912. The unusual thing about this was that neither of the two was the incumbent president, William Howard Taft. In 1908 Taft had been elected president with the support of Theodore Roosevelt; however, by 1912 the two men had broken, dividing the Republican Party. The liberal governor of New Jersey, Thomas Woodrow Wilson, was the Democratic Party's choice, while Roosevelt campaigned as the candidate of the Progressive, or Bull Moose, Party. In The Election of 1912 and the Administration of Woodrow Wilson, noted historian and Wilson biographer August Heekscher provides an overview of this crucial election. Book jacket.
