With the rise of the contemporary progressive movement and the election of President BarackObama in 2008, there is extensive public interest in beer understanding the origins, values, andintellectual strands of progressivism. Who were the original progressive thinkers and activists?Where did their ideas come om and what motivated their beliefs and actions? What were their main goals for society and government? How did their ideas inuence or diverge om alternativesocial doctrines? How do their ideas and beliefs relate to contemporary progressivism?e new Progressive Tradition Series om the Center for American Progress traces the develop-ment of progressivism as a social and political tradition stretching om the late 19th centuryreform eorts to the current day. e series is designed primarily for educational and leadershipdevelopment purposes to help students and activists beer understand the foundations of pro- gressive thought and its relationship to politics and social movements. Although the ProgressiveStudies Program has its own views about the relative merit of the various values, ideas, andactors discussed within the progressive tradition, the essays included in the series are descriptiveand analytical rather than opinion based. We envision the essays serving as primers for exploring  progressivism and liberalism in more depth through core texts—and in contrast to the conserva-tive intellectual tradition and canon. We hope that these papers will promote ongoing discourseabout the proper role of the state and individual in society, the relationship between empiricalevidence and policymaking, and how progressives today might approach specic issues involv-ing the economy, health care, energy-climate change, education, nancial regulation, social andcultural aairs, and international relations and national security. Part two examines the politics of national progressivism om the agrarian populists to theGreat Society.
