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 XYD Women Lace D'Orsay Pumps Pointed Toe Stiletto High Heels Slip on Dress Wedding Bridal Shoes B07BHL89RN 15 B(M) US|Blackdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with New Balance Women's Versi v1 Cushioning Running Shoe B0751GPX9Z 10 B(M) US|Pigment, the powerful Speaker of the House, and OluKai Ohana B00598FRWE 5 B(M) US|Mica/Dark Java, 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, Converse Unisex Jack Purcell Jack Ox Casual Shoe B078NH6PCM 9 D(M) US / 10.5 B(M) US|Dark Burgundy/White. 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.
