By Nancy Unger

This comprehensive biography weaves the triumph and the tragedy of the public and private lives of the most famous of Wisconsin leaders, Robert "Fighting Bob” La Follette. In her introduction, Nancy C. Unger writes that La Follette "dedicated his life to returning power to the people.” As a U.S. representative, governor of Wisconsin, and U.S. Senator, La Follette’s political legacies have been long lasting; among them are the election of senators by constituents, creation of the Department of Labor and the Federal Trade Commission, women’s suffrage, and workers’ compensation.
