Description:

Three times the Democratic Party's nominee for president (1896, 1900, and 1908), and Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson, William Jennings Bryan voiced the concerns of many Americans left out of the post-Civil War economic growth. In this book, Robert W. Cherny traces Bryan's major political crusades for a new currency policy, prohibition, and women's suffrage, and against colonialism, monopolies, America's entry into World War I, and the teaching of evolution in the public schools. Drawing on Bryan's writings and correspondence, Cherny presents Bryan's key role in the Democratic Party's transformation from a proponent of minimal government to an advocate of active government.
