|Availability:||Available at 2 Libraries 2 of 2 copies|
In a major reassessment of modern conservatism and a stunningly original work of history, noted historian Kathryn Olmsted re-examines the explosive labour disputes in the agricultural fields of Depression-era California, the cauldron that inspired a generation of artists and writers and that triggered the intervention of FDR's New Deal. Right Out of California tells how this brief moment of upheaval terrified business leaders into rethinking their relationship to American politics
