    Review quote
    A superb study, capturing the light and shade of the early twentieth century. . . . The quiet unobtrusive scholarship provides a mature compelling view of the Progressive years. Cooper's flowing text presents an integrated and persuasively complex picture of the period. . . . Masterfuly captures the ironies, subtleties, and characters. --Bernard Aspinwall"
    Back cover copy
    Contemporary America began in the first two decades of this century. These were the years in which two of our greatest presidents-- Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson--transformed the office into the center of power; in which the United States entered the world stage and fought its first overseas war; in which the government's proper role in the economy became a public question; and in which reform became an imperative for muckraking reporters, progressive politicians, social activists, and writers.
