Summary

Introduced in the last decade of the 19th century as a direct response to the changes brought about by industrialization, the progressive movement helped reform the political process in the United States. Progressives believed that monopolies and political machines should be eliminated, people should be more involved in the political process, and the U.S. government should play a more prominent role in dealing with America's social ills, including poverty and child labor. This book brings the incredible story of the progressive movement to life thanks to its striking blend of rich photographs, concise text, and helpful features such as sidebars, a chronology and timeline, a bibliography, and suggestions for further reading.
