Publisher's Summary

Rothbard's posthumous masterpiece is the definitive book on the Progressives. It will soon be the must read study of this dreadful time in our past. (from the foreword by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano)
The current relationship between the modern state and the economy has its roots in the Progressive Era. (from the introduction by Patrick Newman)
Progressivism brought the triumph of institutionalized racism, the disfranchising of blacks in the South, the cutting off of immigration, the building up of trade unions by the federal government into a tripartite big government, big business, big unions alliance, the glorifying of military virtues and conscription, and a drive for American expansion abroad. In short, the Progressive Era ushered the modern American politico-economic system into being. (from the preface by Murray N. Rothbard)

Details... Oh my God, the details

As a history teacher I feel this book does us all a favor. It's always good to have the other side of the story. The book feels like a mix of historical reporting, academic explanation and endless accounting of details. I have utilized sections of the text in my highschool history classes to great results. Great book but I'd suggest some more mainstream history first so that you can understand many of the references, counter points and refuted claims. Even just a solid mainstream documentary could work as a primer.

Excellent and Insightful

Though I had some knowledge of the progressive time period, I found after listening to this audio book, there were huge gaps in my presupposed perceptions. My thanks to the Mises Institute for making this superb volume available!
