Synopsis: This is a provocative reconsideration of the intellectual origins of Progressivism as it developed from 1885 to the eve of World War I. Eldon Eisenach argues that the Progressives are far more important for our understanding of American culture than we've been led to believe and that they, in fact, established and shaped our most influential institutions - governmental, cultural, educational, religious, professional, economic, and journalistic - as we know them today.
Eisenach contends that, despite its demise as a galvanizing force in national party politics, Progressive thought remains a powerful influence in contemporary America. In particular, he shows how Progressive ideas resonate with current debates over individual rights and civic responsibilities, the relationship between the government and the economy, and America's international reputation.
From the Back Cover: "Thoughtful and well written, this splendid book effectively links important Progressive thinkers with developments in American political theory today. Taking the Progressives seriously on their own terms, Eisenach succeeds where many others have failed. An illuminating and important work."--James T. Kloppenberg, author of Uncertain Victory: Social Democracy and Progressivism in European and American Thought, 1870-1920
"Required reading for anyone interested in how Progressive ideas reshaped political life in the United States. Eisenach reveals how Progressivism gave rise to a new political order by the eve of World War I, one that redefined American identity in nationalist and historicist terms, only to disintegrate in philosophical contradiction and institutional fragmentation. A provocative and thoughtful study."--Sidney M. Milkis, author of The President and the Parties: The Transformation of the American Party System since the New Deal
"Eisenach succeeds admirably in capturing anew what was genuinely distinctive and transformative in American thought at the beginning of the twentieth century . . . and casts important light on many of the key dilemmas of American liberalism."--Sanford Levinson, author of Constitutional Faith
