Why was Oklahoma, of all places, more hospitable to socialism than any other state in America? In this provocative book, Jim Bissett chronicles the rise and fall of the Socialist Party of Oklahoma during the first two decades of the twentieth century, when socialism in the United States enjoyed its golden age.

To explain socialismâ?™s popularity in Oklahoma, Bissett looks back to the stateâ?™s strong tradition of agrarian reform. Drawing most of its support from working farmers, the Socialist Party of Oklahoma was rooted in such well-established organizations as the Farmers Alliance and the Indiahoma Farmersâ?™ Union. And to broaden its appeal, the Party borrowed from the ideology both of the American Revolution and of Christianity. By making Marxism speak in American terms, the author argues, Party activists counteracted the prevailing notion that socialism was illegitimate or un-American.

This covers a fascinating portion of the history of Oklahoma that I did not know about. The book is well written and reads easily. This is not a dry history book. The book shows the initiative and independence of Oklahoma farmers during the first 20 years of the 20th century.

This is an interesting history book,which was very helpful for my own work as a researcher and writer. Nonetheless, it is certainly also valuable to anyone casually interested in the political and economic issues of early twentieth century, rural Oklahoma.

Banded in Oklahoma --will not be on the shelves at your local barnes and noble---I have been waiting for someone to tell the tail of socialism in Oklahoma, that dust and oilmen blew away. Kafka said it best in Amerika---the wonderland of Oklahoma
