About this title

Synopsis:

Written in lucid, vigorous prose, La Follette's Autobiography is the famous Wisconsin senator's own account of his political life and philosophy. Both memoir and a history of the Progressive cause in the United States, it charts La Follette's formative years in politics, his attempts to abolish entrenched, ruthless state and corporate influences, and his embattled efforts to advance Progressive policies as Wisconsin governor and U.S. senator. With a new foreword by Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive—the magazine that La Follette himself founded—the Autobiography remains a powerful reminder of the legacies of Progressivism and reform and the enduring voice of the man who fought for them.

Review:

"Focusing on the intense personal relationships that bound the state's first family together in the pursuit of the public good, Weisberger's account breaks fresh ground in its analysis of the origins and development of Wisconsin Progressivism and enhances our understanding of Midwestern insurgency."--James J. Lorence, "Journal of American History"

"A political testament of great worth. . . . It was, and remains, a testimonial to democracy by one of its great champions." John C. Colson, Wisconsin Historical Society"

"Direct, sarcastic, savage, jutting his powerful jaw at its most defiant angle, banging home his points until his fist sometimes trickled blood, 'Fighting Bob' was something to behold. The essential qualities of the man are all in this blunt, belligerent, rousing autobiography." Eric F. Goldman, New York Times Book Review"
