HOW WILSONIAN WAS WOODROW
WILSON?
MARK WESTON JANIS*
This essay reveals how President Woodrow Wilson's passion for international law
slowly developed over several stages in his life from his professorship at Princeton to
his presidency. By exploring Wilson's conversion from a skeptic of international law to
one of its greatest proponents, the author shows how Wilson's world view shaped
American foreign policy and the political landscape.
