This book is the FIRST historical and critical review of Progressivism in the United States including the original Progressive period, the progressives of the Popular Front in the 1930s and 1940s, and the progressives of the last four decades. Wagner suggests the progressives have failed in each period, settling for a role in the Democratic Party (the Republican in the first period) and for a reformist role.
