An article earlier this month by UW-Madison's Kathy Cramer appeared in the Capital Times and was headlined, “Wisconsin's rural consciousness: Exploring a place-based sense of injustice.” Cramer is a political science professor and director of the Morgridge Center for Public Service, which is administratively housed in the School of Education. The article is excerpted from the first three chapters of Cramer's, “The Politics of Resentment: Rural Consciousness in Wisconsin and the Rise of Scott Walker,” published by The University of Chicago Press in April.
