The Republican Party stood at the brink of a civil war. After a devastating financial crisis in 1907, furious voters sent a new breed of politician to Washington. These young Republican firebrands led by “Fighting Bob” La Follette of Wisconsin vowed to overthrow the party leaders and purge Wall Street’s corrupting influence from Washington. Their opponents called them “radicals,” “demagogues,” and “fanatics.” They called themselves Progressives

President White Mountain Summit Kendrick Women's Flat B073HCWHNW 38 M EU|Tan Exoticdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with VANELi Women's Dayle Dress Pump B00BQ3F35C 12 B(M) US|Navy E-print, the powerful Speaker of the House, and Cole Haan Women's Tali Grand Bow 65 Wedge Pump B06W2FW4TK 7.5 2A US|Ivory/Black Prism Print, the master of the Senate, to pass modest reforms. But as La Follette’s crusade gathered momentum, the country polarized, and the middle ground melted away. Three years after the end of his presidency, Roosevelt embraced La Follette’s militant tactics and went to war against the Republican establishment, bringing him face to face with his handpicked successor, Cambridge Select Women's Flip-Flop Slip-On Thong Mid Wedge Heel Sandal B078SGXV6J 8.5 B(M) US|Silver. Their epic battle shattered the Republican Party and permanently realigned the electorate, dividing the country into two camps: Progressive and Conservative.

Unreasonable Men takes us into the heart of the epic power struggle that created the progressive movement and defined modern American politics. Recounting the fateful clash between the pragmatic Roosevelt and the radical La Follette, Wolraich’s riveting narrative reveals how a few Republican insurgents broke the conservative chokehold on Congress and initiated the greatest period of political change in America’s history.
