This book is based primarily upon, and mainly consists of, matter contained in articles Roosevelt wrote in the Metropolitan Magazine. The principles set forth in this book are simply the principles of true Americanism within and without our own borders, the principles which, according to his abilities, he preached and, according to his abilities, practiced for thirty-five years since he first began to take an active interest in American history and American political life.

About the author (2003)

Periodically throughout his extraordinary career, Theodore Roosevelt turned to the writing of history. Energetic about everything he did, he imbued his writing with verve and a strong sense of drama that continues to attract readers today. Born in New York City and educated at Harvard University, he immersed himself in public affairs long before he became President of the United States. A man of many talents, he was, among other things, police commissioner, mayoral candidate, rancher, hunter, explorer, soldier, and governor. His strong sense of history probably influenced his actions more times than not, and certainly he brought to the White House in 1901 an awareness of how much the past conditions the present and informs the future. Roosevelt made history, influenced history, and wrote history.
