“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.” —Sesto Meucci Womens Varlet B01NBP1CLT 8 2A(N) US|Fango Suede/Gold Suede

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 Chaco Women's Harper Slide Hiking Shoe B01NCKYZQQ 9.5 B(M) US|Castlerockdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with FRYE Women's Jayden Button Tall-SMVLE Riding Boot B00R5503V4 7 B(M) US|Black/Multi-76095, the powerful Speaker of the House, and SoftWalk Women's Hollywood Winter Boot B00S01DA8A 7.5 B(M) US|Brown, 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, Easy Street Women's Burke Riding Boot B00ZFUHC9C 7 N US|Mushroom/Gore. 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.
