A memorable tribute to an iconic Wisconsin political figure.
Author Dennis Dresang has created a marvelous tribute to one of Wisconsin's outstanding political leaders, Patrick J. Lucey. In this compelling and highly readable work, Dresang uses the former Governor's story to document the rise of the modern Democratic Party in Wisconsin and to highlight a period of intense political reform rivaled only by the Progressive Era of the early 20th century. If you want to know what devotion to the public good and innovative policy development are all about, read this book. It is a refreshing look at a time when common sense and good government still mattered.
