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 A. Craig, an expert on economic history, delves into Daniels's extensive archive to inform this nuanced and eminently readable biography, following Daniels's 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.

Victory Without Peace is about the US Navy in European and Near Eastern waters in the post World War I era. It is the third book in the author’s study of the US Navy in European waters. The author discusses the Navy’s participation in the peace negotiations at Versailles. The Navy was involved carrying out the naval terms of the Armistice and peace negotiations and in efforts to preserve stability and peace created by the war, revolutions, civil wars, famine and general unrest. US warships were deployed in the Near East, the Baltic, northern Europe, and the Adriatic at the same time that demobilization was withdrawing these forces from European waters. The United States Navy for the first time contributed to these peacetime efforts. It set a precedence that the Navy still carried out today. This deployment was handicapped by demobilization, general naval policy and the postwar reduction of personnel and operating funds as a result of Congressional appropriations. The Navy was reluctant to allocate forces to European and Near Eastern waters considered after the war to be of little importance to the United States. Nonetheless, under pressure from the State Department and Herbert Hoover, as head of the American Relief Administration, forces were deployed and played significant roles in carrying out their responsibilities. Most of them were withdrawn by 1924 and the European Station assumed the traditional policy of showing the flag.

Arms control diplomacy as a central factor in superpower relations is not a new phenomenon. In this book, Christopher Hall traces the rise and fall of a previous arms limitation effort, the naval treaties of the interwar years, which successfully controlled competition in the strategic weapons of that era - the battleships and other vessels of the British, American and other 'great power' navies. He shows the problems and their solutions - many of relevance today - which made the treaties possible, and their major role in the peaceful transfer of leadership of the west from the British Empire to the United States.
