Description du livre University Press of Kansas, Lawrence, 2013. Softcover. Etat : New. 236 pages. Softcover. New book. UNITED STATES PRESIDENTS. Main selection of the History Book Club. Imagine a presidential election with four well-qualified and distinguished candidates and a serious debate over the future of the nation! Sound impossible in this era of attack ads and strident partisanship? It happened nearly a century ago in 1912, when incumbent Republican William Howard Taft, former president Theodore Roosevelt running as the Progressive Party candidate, Democratic nominee Woodrow Wilson, and Socialist candidate Eugene V. Debs all spoke to major concerns of the American people and changed the landscape of national politics in the bargain. The presidential election of 1912 saw a third-party candidate finish second in both popular and electoral votes. The Socialist candidate received the highest percentage of the popular vote his party ever attained. In addition to year-round campaigning in the modern style, the 1912 contest featured a broader role for women, two exciting national conventions, and an assassination attempt on Roosevelt's life. The election defined the major parties for generations to come as the Taft-Roosevelt split pushed the Republicans to the right and the Democrats' agenda of reform set them on the road to the New Deal. Lewis L. Gould, one of America's preeminent political historians, tells the story of this dramatic race and explains its enduring significance. Basing his narrative on the original letters and documents of the candidates themselves, he guides his readers down the campaign trail through the factional splits, exciting primaries, tumultuous conventions and the turbulent fall campaign to Wilson's landslide electoral vote victory in November. It's all hereÑGene Debs's challenge to capitalism, the progressive rivalry of Roosevelt and Robert La Follette, the debate between the New Freedom of Wilson and the New Nationalism of Roosevelt, and the resolve of Taft to defeat his one-time friend TR and keep the Republican Party in conservative hands. Gould combines lively anecdotes, the poetry and prose of the campaign, and insights into the clash of ideology and personality to craft a narrative that moves as fast as did the 1912 election itself. Americans sensed in 1912 that they stood at a turning point in the nation's history. Four Hats in the Ring demonstrates why the people who lived and fought this significant election were more right than they could ever have known. LEWIS L. GOULD's many books include The Modern American Presidency, The William Howard Taft Presidency, The Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt, and Grand Old Party: A History of the Republicans. He lives in Austin, Texas. "Gould's writing is exhilarating. . . . He also reminds readers of the long-term impact of the race. Here, indeed, is the birth of modern American politics, the origins of a liberal-conservative divide, grounded in policy and rhetoric, embodied, respectively, in the Republican and Democratic Parties. It is no wonder that Gould's account should seem so fresh."ÑPolitical Science Quarterly "This book should remain the standard account of this contest for the foreseeable future."ÑJournal of American History "Unquestionably the definitive work on the seminal election of 1912. Essential. All levels/libraries."ÑChoice "This shrewdly argued and beautifully crafted volume illuminates the enduring significance of the 1912 race. The best book ever written about one of the more intelligent campaigns in U.S. history."ÑMichael Kazin, author of A Godly Hero: The Life of William Jennings Bryan "The best informed and most trenchant study of this election yet published. Fluent, lucid, authoritative, it resounds with the politics of the Progressive era."ÑJohn Morton Blum, author of The Republican Roosevelt "At long last, the 1912 election has the history it deserves. A splendid book. A remarkable and splendid book written with unfailing insight, balance, and fairness to all the candidates."ÑJohn Milton Cooper, Jr., book. N° de réf. du vendeur 77336X2
