Review
“In this little book brimming with big ideas, the author seeks to draw lessons for our times by indicating ... the old Progressives' linkage of moral and family values to communitarian ends.” Historian “The book raises good questions ... about the challenges contemporary historians continue to face in making sense of the dual nature of reformers and reform movements.” H-SHGAPE “Burnstein's interpretation of reform activities ... rehabilitates the reputation of the Progressives and inspires readers seeking to reshape political debates over social issues.” Journal of Social History
