"A model of its kind....A sympathetic understanding of broad social movements, a mature appreciation of character, an original interpretation of economic facts and factors, an incisive criticism of political techniques, and a literary style that is always vigorous and sometimes brilliant."--Henry Steele Commager, New York Herald Tribune Books
"Constitutes the best one-volume history that has appeared of that first crop of social ideals politically garnered in Populism....Also valuable in that it is something more than the story of Populism. It is a striking portait of a man."--W.A. White, Saturday Review of Literature
