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 Vans Unisex Old Skool (Mono Bumper) Dress Blues/True White B074HC96TF 12.5 Women / 11 Men M?USdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with Taryn Rose Women's Iris Knit Slide Sandal B075MQFLLX 9 M M US|Blush, the powerful Speaker of the House, and Trotters Women's Joy Sneaker B07932LDL2 9 N US|Black Patent Suede, 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, Storm Meadow Bowling Shoes B00ZBWFPES 9.5|Grey/Pink. 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.
