Project #77767 - Populism to progressivism

  1. Politics in the late 19th century was nothing if not colorful. Discuss the key issues and political leaders of this era; then turn to the development of populism, one of the most important reform movements of the era. Trace its evolution and development. What were the populists' assumptions about American life? How did they propose to reform the nation? Why was the election of 1896 such a great watershed in American political life.

    Industrialization turned the United States into a great world power - at least on paper - and that in turn had a huge impact on American foreign policy. Analyze this transformation in American foreign policy and the overseas acquisitions that it led to by the early 20th century. Why do Americans prefer to talk about "expansion" rather than "imperialism" as so many others choose to do?

  2. As the 20th century began, there emerged a new reform movement known as the Progressivism. With so many forces shaping its direction, it was nothing if not complex. Discuss the various forces that helped give rise to progressivism and which provided its strength and direction. Be sure to assess the accomplishments of progressivism at the city and state level - who were the leading figures and what did they accomplish? Progressivms is perhaps best known for what it accomplished, or tried to accomplish, on the national level, beginning with the administration of Theodore Roosevelt and followed by those of William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson. What were their programs and to what extent they were successful? In the final analysis, in what spheres did progressivism succeed and in what areas did it make little headway
