Yet the relationship between House and the president ended in a quarrel at the Paris peace conference of 1919 - largely because of Mrs. Wilson's hostility to House - and House has received little sympathetic historical attention since. This extensively researched book reintroduces House and clearly establishes his contributions as one of the greatest American diplomats."."
