Joshua Hawley is a United States senator for Missouri.
"Hawley has pieced together an interesting interpretation of
Theodore Roosevelt. . . . [A] well-written, insightful book.
"Joshua David Hawley has made a contribution to this literature with a different kind of biography, offering a fresh interpretation of Roosevelt. . . . Hawley is an impressive researcher . . . at times eloquent. . . . This is a persuasive book." -Ryan J. Barilleaux, The Historian
"Hawley situates Roosevelt in a rich political/intellectual culture that stretches from the 1870s until the First World War and provides a perspective on Theodore Roosevelt that is largely missing from current historiography."-Mark Lytle, Bard College
"A fresh and persuasive approach to Theodore Roosevelt."-John Morton Blum, Yale University
"Theodore Roosevelt deserves to be acknowledged at least as much for what he thought as for what he did, and with this book Hawley at last redresses the balance between Roosevelt the thinker and Roosevelt the doer. Those who read Preacher of Righteousness will never again be able to dismiss him simply as 'pure act', a legendary description archly tendered by Roosevelt's learned friend, Henry Adams."-From the Foreword by David Kennedy
