Reinventing The People Book Description:

In this much needed comprehensive study of the Progressivemovement, its reformers, their ideology, and the social circumstancesthey tried to change, Shelton Stromquist contends that the persistenceof class conflict in America challenged the very defining feature ofProgressivism: its promise of social harmony through democraticrenewal. Profiling the movement's work in diverse arenas of socialreform, politics, labour regulation and race improvement, Stromquistargues that while progressive reformers may have emphasized differentprograms, they crafted a common language of social reconciliation inwhich an imagined civic community (the People) would transcendparochial class and political loyalties.
