For the Political Science and History buff, Kesler has written an excellent little history of the Progessive movement in the United States. It is not, however, "light" reading. If you're interested in understanding what Presidents Wilson, FDR, Johnson, and now Obama have been up to...this book will provide some great insight. Unfortunately, as much as I wish for Kesler's conclusion about the fate of Liberalism, he does not provide the detail necessary to instill much confidence.

"The elementary point about a quasi-Hegelian dialectic like this was that the synthesis, which nullified, incorporated. and transcended the thesis and the anti-thesis was something altogether different from either of them" This is an actual sentence from the book. There is some good and useful information here, but you first have to get through way too many sentences like this. In other words another scholar who has trouble communicating in a straight forward fashion.
