Josephus Daniels

His Life and Times

By Lee Craig
Narrated by Johnny Heller / 19 hours 11 minutes

As a longtime leader of the Democratic Party and key member of Woodrow Wilson's cabinet, Josephus Daniels was one of the most influential progressive politicians in the country, and as secretary of the navy during the First World War, he became one of the most important men in the world. Before that, Daniels revolutionized the newspaper industry in the South, forever changing the relationship between politics and the news media. Lee Craig, an expert on economic history, delves into Daniels' extensive archive to inform this nuanced and eminently readable biography, following Daniels' rise to power in North Carolina and chronicling his influence on twentieth-century politics.A man of great contradictions, Daniels-an ardent prohibitionist, free trader, and free silverite-made a fortune in private industry yet served as a persistent critic of unregulated capitalism. He championed progressive causes like the graded public school movement and antitrust laws even as he led North Carolina's white supremacy movement. Craig pulls no punches in his definitive biography of this political powerhouse.
