520    "The untold story behind the most shocking political 
       upheaval in the country. For more than a century, 
       Wisconsin has been known nationwide for its progressive 
       ideas and government. It famously served as a "laboratory 
       of democracy," a cradle of the labor and environmental 
       movements, and birthplace of the Wisconsin Idea, which 
       championed expertise in the service of the common good. 
       But following a Republican sweep of the state's government
       in 2010, Wisconsin's political heritage was overturned, 
       and the state went Republican for the first time in three 
       decades in the 2016 presidential election, elevating 
       Donald J. Trump to the presidency. The Fall of Wisconsin 
       is a deeply reported, searing account of how the state's 
       progressive tradition was undone and turned into a model 
       for national conservatives bent on remaking the country. 
       Dan Kaufman, a Wisconsin native who has been covering the 
       story for several years, traces the history of 
       progressivism that made Wisconsin so widely admired, from 
       the work of celebrated politicians like Robert "Fighting 
       Bob" La Follette and Gaylord Nelson, to local traditions 
       like Milwaukee's "sewer socialism," to the conservationist
       ideas of Aldo Leopold and the state's Native American 
       tribes. Kaufman reveals how the "divide-and-conquer" 
       strategy of Governor Scott Walker and his allies pitted 
       Wisconsin's citizens against one another so powerful 
       corporations and wealthy donors could effectively take 
       control of state government. As a result, laws protecting 
       voting rights, labor unions, the environment, and public 
       education were rapidly dismantled"--Provided by publisher
