By Jonathan Kasparek

Proxmire: Bulldog of the Senate
is the first comprehensive biography of one of Wisconsin's most important, and entertaining, political figures. Known for championing consumer-protection legislation and farming interests, Senator Proxmire also fought continuously against wasteful government spending, highlighting the most egregious examples with his monthly "Golden Fleece Award." Remembered by many Wisconsinites as a friendly, hand-shaking fixture at sporting events and state fairs, Proxmire was one of the few politicians who voted his conscience and never forgot about the people he represented.

Author Bio: Jonathan Kasparek is a history professor at UW-Milwaukee at Waukesha and the author of several books and articles on Wisconsin history, including the award-winning biography of Philip La Follette, Fighting Son.
