Summary
"Based on La Follette family letters, diaries, and other papers, this biography includes startling details of La Foltette's early childhood and the true story behind the "nervous breakdown" during his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in 1912. Unger also covers La Follette's spirited opposition to American entry into World War I and his third-party bid for the presidency in 1924. She also explores his relationship with his remarkable wife, feminist Belle Case La Follette, and with his sons, both of whom succeeded him in politics. The La Follette who emerges from this retelling is an imperfect yet appealing man who deserves to be remembered as one of the United States' most important politicians."--BOOK JACKET
