La Follette's Autobiography: A Personal Narrative of Political Experience
University of Wisconsin Press, Madison, WI, 1982, Trade Paperback, , Later Printing, Very Good
pp. 349. Clean, newish, but for small water stain. 'For an understanding of Bossism, Reform, and Progressivism as they were known in the United States between 1890 and 1912, this book is the most illunimating as well as the most interesting work in existence. . . In the stormy period here covered many men thought with La Follette that greedy business interests were fast gaining control of the land through the servants they placed in state governments and the Senate; and with varying degrees of fervor reformers fought their way to the helm in one state after another--Dolliver and Cummins in Iowa, Bristow in Kansas, George W. Norris in Nebraska, Beveridge in Indiana, U'Renin in Oregon, Hughes in New York--to combat these interests. All of them kept their eyes on La Follette and Wisconsin as models.'
