      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.
