The Fall of Wisconsin
Available at:Amazon.com | Barnes & Noble | Apple Books | IndieBound
Kaufman burrows badgerlike into the politics of America's Dairyland, unearthing the personal histories of its people: an ironworker turned activist, a conservation biologist, a Native American tribal elder. In doing so, he reveals Wisconsin's transformation from a "pioneering beacon" of progressive policies, responsible for the nation's first worker's-comp and unemployment-insurance programs, to "a laboratory for corporate interests." Imagine Howard Zinn and Thomas Frank chewing the fat at a Packers game.
