Limits of Agrarian Radicalism As Ross Perot proved in 1992, even when funded by a bottomless bank account, American third parties have always struggled in their efforts to achieve recognition and political power Yet even in defeat their contributions to national politics have been substantial That, Peter Argersinger contends, was certainly true of the Populists a century earlier.Argersinger, one of our nation s foremost historians of the Populist era, brings together in this volume some of his best and most influential essays ranging from a study of a single election campaign to complex analyses of political organizations, legislative behavior, and government institutions Together they amply display his consistently sharp and wide ranging insights on this important moment in American life.Argersinger examines, among other things, the Populists evolution in electoral politics, from creating a party to running election campaigns the enormous obstacles they overcame in the process of electing a U.S Senator specific laws and procedures that suppressed Populism s full political participation hard won successes in Western state legislatures in the face of powerful enemies and numerous internal disputes and the Populists long standing struggles and frustrations with the U.S Congress.Throughout Argersinger illuminates the fundamental ways in which Populism challenged our political system and brings to life its volatile personalities, dramatic controversies, visionary programs, and enduring frustrations So frustrating that an Oklahoma Populist once pulled a gun on the Speaker of the House who kept refusing to recognize his request to speak to the assembly Of special interest to political, social, rural, Western, and Gilded Age historians, this book provides a timely reminder of the political constraints on third parties in America.
