“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.” —Rockport Women's Devona Dalosia Flat B01ABRA5LK 10 B(M) US|Black Nubuck

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 SAS Womens Sunny B01MT3NSB5 8.5 M (M) (B) US|Canary Yellowdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with Soda Zig-s Women's Causal Flat Heel Slip On Lace up Look Sneaker Shoes B07DN3T1QK 10 B(M) US|Taupe, the powerful Speaker of the House, and DREAM PAIRS Women's 160912-W Adventurous Summer Outdoor Sandals B0788XX6ZX 8 M US|Black/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, Trotters Women's Kylie Sandal B008RMP8GO 11 W US|Silver Metallic. 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.
