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 FRYE Women's Julie Front Zip Combat Boot B01MT5I8KM 11 B(M) US|Cognac Full Grain Brush Offdisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with CLARKS Women's Flores Dahlia Ankle Bootie B01N7GM2C7 11 B(M) US|Grey Suede/Leather Combi, the powerful Speaker of the House, and Hush Puppies Women's Cyra Catelyn Ankle Bootie B01N39DYAK 6.5 B(M) US|Burgundy, 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, Twisted X Women's Driving Lace-up Moccasins Round Toe - Wdm0001 B00GVNYOPW 7.5 B(M) US|Copper. 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.
