Book Description Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc., 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good +. 1st Edition. From the inside cover: "Spotlighting an unexplored area of the New Deal scene the relationship between civil liberties and workers' liberties- Mr. Auerbach reveals a neglected aspect of the Depression era: the recognition that government power can protect, rather than destroy, liberty. Through reading this carefully researched analysis of the La Follette Committee's origins, investigations, hearings, reports, and recommendations for legislation, the reader gains a panoramic view of labor and management in the thirties- the personalities, organizations, and events that shaped a "new deal" for labor. And, perhaps most important, he gains insight into the ancillary challenge that faced both government and citizenry as they sought to guarantee labor's rights to organize the expansion of protection provided by the Bill of Rights in twentieth-century America."

From Wikipedia: "Robert Marion "Fighting Bob" La Follette, Sr. (June 14, 1855 June 18, 1925) was an American Republican (and later a Progressive) politician. He served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, was the Governor of Wisconsin, and was also a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin (1906 to 1925). He ran for President of the United States as the nominee of his own Progressive Party in 1924, carrying Wisconsin and 17% of the national popular vote. His wife Belle Case La Follette and sons Robert M. La Follette, Jr. and Philip La Follette led his political faction in Wisconsin into the 1940s. La Follette has been called "arguably the most important and recognized leader of the opposition to the growing dominance of corporations over the Government" and is one of the key figures pointed to in Wisconsin's long history of political liberalism. He is best remembered as a proponent of progressivism and a vocal opponent of railroad trusts, bossism, World War I, and the League of Nations. In 1957, a Senate Committee selected La Follette as one of the five greatest U.S. Senators, along with Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, and Robert Taft. A 1982 survey asking historians to rank the "ten greatest Senators in the nation's history" based on "accomplishments in office" and "long range impact on American history, " placed La Follette first, tied with Henry Clay. Robert La Follette is one of five outstanding senators memorialized by portraits in the Senate reception room in US Capitol. One of America's top schools for public affairs, located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison bears his name." Good in good dust jacket. Price clipped.
