Editorial Reviews


". . . reveals a dynamic plain folk culture, an assertive people who, though victimized by circumstances beyond their control, nonetheless proved willing to challenge the mechanisms of injustice that inhibited their social and political empowerment. Combining extensive historiographical and quantitative analysis with captivating personal detail, Wilkison's reconsideration of the Texas plain folk is certain to serve as a model for future studies. It is a must for those who seek to understand the complexities of southern sociopolitical development in the late 19th and early 20th centuries."--Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries

(Choice 20100101)

 "The book displays an impressive amount of research and some superb analysis...Yeomen, Sharecroppers, and Socialists is a fascinating work. . . it will likely affect research on Southwestern radicalism for years to come." -- Nigel Anthony Sellars, Christopher Newport University

(Nigel Anthony Sellars Western Historical Quarterly 20100623)

"Wilkison does not mince his words but makes his points clear and precise."

"Wilkison's monograph warrants professional recognition because he explains the choices mde by a distinct minority within the white landless farmer majority"

(Debra A. Reid H-Net Reviews 20120111)

Format: Hardcover
Wilkison has produced here a stunning work - a model for how history should be studied and written. One does not tpically associate leftist ideology with Texas history, but reading this book will open some eyes. Deeply researched and very well written. Look for this one to win some prizes!
