“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.” —Skechers Sport Women's Skech Air Run High Fashion Sneaker B00MXVI60U 9 B(M) US|Black Mesh/Hot Pink Trim

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 Reebok Women's Cloudride LS DMX Walking Shoe B01HH8OSLO 9 B(M) US|Manic Cherry/Fire Spark/Whitedisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with NIKE Men's Air Max Sequent 2 Running Shoe B01K2LT6JW 5.5 D(M) US|Grey/Orange/Red/White, the powerful Speaker of the House, and NIKE Women's Tessen Running Shoe B0733TL3W8 11.5 B(M) US|Pure Platinum/White - Wolf Grey, 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, ONEMIX Women's Lightweight Air Cushion Outdoor Sport Running Shoes B06ZY4Q5HH Women 5(M)US/Kid 3.5(M)US 35EU|Pink Blue. 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.
