Editorial Reviews

Review

"Roll stresses the blending of religious and political ideology . . . Spirit of Rebellion highlights American rural labor activism at a time when the history of American populism needs to be understood." --The Florida Historical Quarterly

"Spirit of Rebellion offers a compelling interpretation to explain sharecroppers' bold protests in the late 1930s and early 1940s. . . . [A] meticulously researched book."--Arkansas Historical Quarterly

"Roll illuminates the socialist traditions of the region as well as the impact of Pentecostal religious movements of the farmers' worldview. Recommended."--Choice

"An important contribution to religious studies. . . . Roll has uncovered a story worth telling."--The Journal of Southern Religion

"Roll's work is highly ambitious. . . . This is a skillful book."--The Journal of American History

"An important book. . . . The willingness of sharecroppers and tenants in the 1930s to confront a powerful elite in order to remain on the land suggests an intense commitment to an agricultural way of life, despite the odds against securing landownership. Roll has given us a way to understand the ideology behind their struggle.-- Labor: Studies in Working-Class History

"Roll successfully knits together labor and religious history to create a compelling account of labor organizing. His is a story little heard: black and whites joining forces and overcoming their differences by dint of shared struggle and faith."--Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
