Summary
The study of two demagogues, whose vast popularity explains much about Depression-era America. This is a book about two remarkable men-Huey P. Long, a first-term United States Senator from the red-clay, piney woods country of northern Louisiana; and Charles E. Coughlin, a Catholic priest from an industrial suburb near Detroit. From modest origins, they rose together in the early years of the Great Depression to become the two most successful leaders of national political dissidence of their era
Summary
This analysis of two powerful American demogogues traces the shaping of their political ideologies and strategies and the reasons behind their ultimate failure
