Scott Walker's Wisconsin: A Fairly Conservative Perspective

Wisconsin government saw sweeping changes in 2011 when Scott Walker became Governor. The Progressive Tradition gave way to Republican control. After months of protests and several recall elections, the law can still change daily here depending on what a judge decides.

Scott Walker's Wisconsin gives you a little of the history of the man and a lot about his first year and a half in office. It covers the recall process and updates the progress made against expensive public unions in the state. Powerful big labor met its match. Wisconsin still leans to the right as the November 2012 presidential election looms.

Kilkenny creates a readable timeline of events in this book with her usual independent tone. Photographer Nick Schweitzer contributes memorable snapshots of the days of protests.
