I chose to review Progressives in America 1900-2020 because it informs me about the rife in America with considerations to progressives. The aim of progressive is to define the interests and challenges of the people and represent the ordinary man. Progressives are to liberate the individual and society from America’s heritage. Progressives have a significant impact on the political discussion, especially in areas such as improving health care, attacking climate change, and healing and remediating social justice issues. This can be done through political change and the backing of government actions. Will progressivism make an essential difference in the American economy? Or will it fail in the American political economy? You will find out when after reading this historical book.

Progressives in America 1900-2020 by David Wagner is a historical book that takes a significant look into progressivism in America. This book briefly highlights how progressives have differed throughout the years. The author gives an insight into the Cold War and the progressive party of 1948. The write also offers an authentic look at the present political system in America and relates them to progressive and liberalism.

First of all, I must say that upon completion of this book, I was happy to gain knowledge of American politics. I liked the fact that the writer was accurate in his historical descriptions. The book is 176 pages long and consists of 6 chapters. My favorite is chapter 6 because Wagner gives the reader his concluding opinion of progressivism relating to the past and our present day.

I enjoyed the narrative of the presidential primary election between Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton. He explained that Obama won the polls because of his charismatic style. The author relates Obama’s regime to progressive. Wagner did an excellent job of educating the reader on radicals. The book focused on progressive, but we must know what movements and political efforts have been more successfully progressive in the past.

I like this book because the author did an excellent job of explaining the importance of progressives in the American Society. The language used was straightforward, and in this manner, it was easy to understand. There was nothing I disliked about this book. The concepts are easy to comprehend and neatly summarized. There is always some level of difficulty in writing historical books. The author wrote this book with a high degree of originality in the content. This non-fiction book is eloquently written and exceptionally edited. I didn't find any errors. It is my pleasure to rate Progressives in America 1900-2020 4 out of 4 stars. This book is recommended for anyone who wants to develop their vocations in politics. It also applies to anyone who likes to know more about the political history of America. To my knowledge, progressive does not make everyone happy. There must be critics and will be contradicted by conservatives and lefties.

Although the book seems educative and well-executed, I'm not really into politics and historical nonfiction novels. Maybe I will try this one sometime in the future. Nice review.

Your take on this book seems as strong as that of the author. I agree that Progressives should be what we live to accomplish. It's just that America, as well as other nations, are made up of self-centred entities. Your review is quite detailed.

A non-political historical book would work well for me. But I like that the contents in the book are original and eloquently written with no trace of grammatical errors. I love your analysis of the book in your review. Good job.
