Josephus Daniels

His Life and Times


As a longtime leader of the Democratic Party andkey member of Woodrow Wilson’s cabinet, Josephus Daniels was one of the mostinfluential progressive politicians in the country, and as secretary of thenavy during the First World War, he became one of the most important men in theworld. 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 informthis nuanced and eminently readable biography, following Daniels’ rise to powerin North Carolina and chronicling his influence on twentieth-century politics.

Aman of great contradictions, Daniels—an ardent prohibitionist, free trader, andfree silverite—made a fortune in private industry yet served as a persistentcritic of unregulated capitalism. He championed progressive causes like the gradedpublic school movement and antitrust laws even as he led North Carolina’s whitesupremacy movement. Craig pulls no punches in his definitive biography of thispolitical powerhouse.
