"Along with Tocqueville's Democracy in America, Croly's study is necessary reading for an understanding of political growth in the United States." —Trenton Times

One of the most important books to emerge from the Progressive era, The Promise of American Life offered a blueprint for a modern activist government that had enormous impact on intellectuals coming of age before World War I.
