“As Michael Wolraich argues in his sharp, streamlined new book, Unreasonable Men, it was ‘the greatest period of political change in American history.’...Unreasonable Men invites comparison with another book on the same era, Doris Kearns Goodwin’s The Bully Pulpit...If I had to choose between them, I would go with Unreasonable Men.” —Sperry Top-Sider Men's Striper LL CVO Fashion Sneaker B01G4EREAO 8.5 D(M) US|Black Linen

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 Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole Women's Haddie Low Profile Fashion Sneaker Embossed Fashion Sneaker B01LZQGMPO 8 M US|Dark Blackdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with Skechers Sport Women's Elite Synergy Fashion Sneaker B019BVDGK4 8.5 W US|Heather Black, the powerful Speaker of the House, and Ryka Women's Hailee Cross Trainer B07C8FD95B 11 W US|Black/Pink, 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, Vans Authentic B01I4B4XU4 10.5 B(M) US Women / 9 D(M) US Men|Black/Frost Grey. 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.
