Thomas Frank

Today "populism" is seen as a frightening thing, a term pundits use to describe the racist philosophy of Trump and European extremists. But the real story of populism is the story of American democracy itself, of its ever-widening promise of a decent life for all.

Taking us from the tumultuous 1890s, when the radical left-wing Populist Party fought Gilded Age plutocrats to the reformers' great triumphs under Roosevelt and Truman, Frank reminds us how much we owe to the populist ethos.
