Much of the scholarship (re)viewing Wilson in the 1920s and into the 1930s rejects the simplistic transformation that Coolidge suggested occurred on his watch. While historians would likely agree with the Vermonter that there was a marked contrast between Wilson and Democratic Party politics at least from 1913 through 1916 and the Harding and Coolidge Republican politics of the 1921–29 era, they have also highlighted continuities tying these periods together. In his major work on the Progressive Era, Michael McGerr contrasts Harding and Coolidge, whom he sees as both emphasizing laissez-faire economics and individualism, to Hoover, whom he depicts as more Wilsonian.
