“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.” —Vans Authentic B000UYCQI0 14.5 B(M) US Women / 13 D(M) US Men|True White

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 L’Artiste by Spring Step Women's Simonetta Boot B074HCBRTW 40 M EU|Blue Multidisapproved of La Follette’s confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with adidas Originals Women's Edge Lux Clima Running Shoe B0716X6MX9 11.5 B(M) US|Core Black/Core Black/White Tint, the powerful Speaker of the House, and ALDO Women's Acussi Slide Sandal B076DGLTF9 7 B(M) US|Light Yellow, 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, Sam Edelman Women's Portman Knee High Boot B06XJJVRBQ 6 B(M) US|Whiskey. 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.
