Croly, Herbert David, 1869-1930
Democracy; United States -- Politics and government; Progressivism (United States politics)
In Progressive Democracy, Herbert Croly explains the requirements for a genuinely popular system of representative government. He provides progressive liberalism with both a philosophical critique of the founding fathers' political outlook, and a political strategy for replacing it with something more in keeping with a new epoch. Although written in 1914, the intellectual structure of Progressive Democracy remains largely intact within the liberal-progressive tradition. It represents the continuation of Croly's pioneering work begun with The Promise of American Life. Sidney Pearson's new introduction analyzes Herbert Croly's political beliefs and works. He discusses the influence Croly had on the Progressive movement and the relevance that his books continue to have to modern-day political and social issues. Progressive Democracy provides invaluable material for political scientists, philosophers, and sociologists.
