Richard Drake presents a new interpretation of Charles Austin Beards life and work. The foremost American historian and a leading public intellectual in the first half of the twentieth century, Beard participated actively in the debates about American politics and foreign policy surrounding the two world wars. Drake takes this famous mans life and rewrites his intellectual biography by placing the European dimension of Beards thought at the center. This radical change of critical focus allows Drake to correct previous biographers oversights and, inCharles Austin Beard, present a far more nuanced appreciation for Beards life than we have read before.

Drake proposes a restoration of Beards professional reputation, which he lost in large part because of his extremely unpopular opposition to Americas intervention in World War II. Drake analyzes the stages of Beards development as a historian and critic: his role as an intellectual leader in the Progressive movement, the support that he gave to the cause of American intervention in World War I, and his subsequent revisionist repudiation of Wilsonian ideals and embrace of non-interventionism in the lead-up to World War II. Many of his dire predictions about the inevitable consequences of pre-World War II American foreign policy have come to pass. Drake shows that, as Americans tally the ruinous costs--both financial and moralof nation-building and informal empire, the life and work of this prophet of history merit a thorough reexamination.
