Editorial Reviews

"This uncommonly good book helps to mark the maturation of the 20th-century American historiography."--David M Kennedy, The New Republic

"History explicated by a master of the art... impressively well written in addition to being topical." --The Chicago Tribune Book World

"It is not often that we get a book as good as this one about demagogic figures like Huey Long and Father Coughlin....A sensititve and subtle work moderated by grace and restraint....Brinkley's findings add to our knowledge of the leaders themselves, but more significantly to the nature of their appeal, their methods...and their relations with President Roosevelt....It would be well for American historiography should shis book mark a turn in predominant fashions." --The New York Review of Books
