About this title


Surveys the role of the Democratic party from the turn of the century to the election of President Woodrow Wilson, and looks at the Democratic leaders who pushed reform

From Publishers Weekly:

This exciting study dramatically re-creates a time when progressivism was a major force on the American political scene. Sarasohn refutes the longtime image of Democrats of the Progressive era as a bumbling, divided band limping behind their insurgent wing and largely passive during the administrations of Theodore Roosevelt and Taft. He offers in its place a levelheaded appraisal of three-time presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan, "the man who largely created the modern Democratic Party," a firebrand vilified by his opponents as a dangerous, wild-eyed populist. Woodrow Wilson, portrayed by some historians as "president-prime minister," master of his party, emerges here as a shrewdly calculating politician who saw that a progressive aura was essential to his winning the White House. Yet Sarasohn (co-editor of American Negro Slavery ) finds the Wilson coalition of 1916 "proto-New Deal," welding the old Dem o cratic alliance of urban machines and the South to Western progressives, renegade Bull Moosers, organized labor and liberal intel lectualsa coalition that reshaped the Democratic party's attitudes and made it a force during the 1920s.
