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 New Balance Women's WW411v2 Hook and Loop Walking Shoe B00V3QSYMQ 10.5 2A US|Whitedisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with New Balance Women's WW1300v1 Walking Shoe B019DLAUAQ 5 B(M) US|Grey, the powerful Speaker of the House, and Skechers Sport Women's Relaxation Breathe Easy Moneybags Sneaker B00CYBIRF8 11 B(M) US|Black, 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 Spirit Women's Romy Sneaker B005AB06E4 10 C/D US|Black Leather. 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.
