Dan Kaufman: The Fall of Wisconsin

Dan Kaufman is a musician and writer living in Brooklyn, New York. He has written previously about the Spanish Civil War for The Nation and the New York Times. His book, The Fall of Wisconsin traces the history of the political heritage of Wisconsin, and the overturn when the state went Republican for the first time in three decades in 2010. Kaufman, a Wisconsin native, has been covering the story for several years and traces how the state’s tradition of progressivism was undone.
