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 Hawkwell Women's Light Weight Sport Fashion Sneaker B06ZY28964 5 B(M) US|1777-fuchsiadisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with FLY London Women's Whin176fly Slide Sandal B07121PWF7 36 M EU|Reef Cupido, the powerful Speaker of the House, and Drew Shoe Women's Genevar Oxfords B0081S0WBK 8 B(M) US|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.

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.
