  • In his life and in his death, Tom Watson embodied both the best and worst of the South When he was at this finest, Watson was a populist crusader who electrified crowds with his rousing stump speeches espousing farm reform and working together between the races He is known as the Father of Rural Free Delivery, and lobbied for many reforms Toward the end of his life, Watson turned into a bitter anti Catholic and racist, downtrodden by his earlier efforts On the steps of the Georgia capital, there [...]


  • Being a populist myself, my interest was in Tom Watson as a populist leader and his sad transformation towards the end of his career What I found out was that, after years of political failure at the hands of a brutally racist Democratic Party in Georgia, which murdered and otherwise intimidated the black populists, he adopted the attitudes of the Democrats for which, as a son of a slave owner, he had street creds as we would say today than the Democratic candidates and was finally elected This [...]


  • If nothing else, this fascinating biography, the first book in C Vann Woodward s brilliant career, reveals the complexities, incongruities and contradictions of the Southern Populist movement, as seen through the life of one of its most compelling and controversial proponents It is a history that is now largely forgotten, but which holds valuable lessons of which we would do well to remain mindful.


  • The whole time I ve been reading this I keep trying to figure out what is wrong and why this book isn t amazing.I think part of it is that because it is so old Woodward assumes certain things are common knowledge It might also be because Woodward does not seem to have a clear thesis Part of it again is that Woodward does not dwell especially deeply in totally nutball things Watson said and did so it diminishes the entertainment value.The idea that Watson could run a series of utterly insane news [...]


  • I read this while doing graduate work in history I became intrigued with the U.S Populist, Labor, and Agrarian movements and parties It seems now that Populists like Watson were a forerunner of today s Libertarians If you are interested in late 19th century U.S history or politics, and especially if the Populist movement, agrarian lifestyle, or southern culture appeal to you, and you don t mind a little heavy reading, you will probably like this If you loathe socialism, anti capitalism, or conse [...]


  • Drawn out tragic history of a Georgia lawyer s rise in politics during the Progressive era and as a key spokesman during the southern Farmers Alliance attempt to create a 3rd party split from the Democrats When dirty politics prevails and he is ousted from Congress, his story is disillusion and reversion from populist ideals.


  • Had to get this book after reading about the trial and subsequent lynching of Leo Frank Tom Watson was definitely an unusual person He got a lot stranger as he got older C.Vann Woodward gave you a good taste of the old South.





  • An amazing book on the life and times of Tom Watson and his rise from agrarian populist to white supremacist.
