"They Are All Red Out Here": Socialist Politics In The Pacific Northwest, 1895-1925, Jeffrey Johnson

Jeffrey A. Johnson

One of early-twentieth-century America’s most fertile grounds for political radicalism, the Pacific Northwest produced some of the most dedicated and successful socialists the country has ever seen. As a radicalized labor force emerged in mining, logging, and other extractive industries, socialists employed intensive organizational and logistical skills to become an almost permanent third party that won elections and shook the confidence of establishment rivals. At the height of Socialist Party influence just before World War I, a Montana member declared, “They are all red out here.”

In this first book to fully examine the development of the American Socialist ...


The Gilded Age & The Frontier Military: Society And Culture At Fort Assinniboine, Montana Territory, 1879 - 1905, Jeffrey Johnson Dec 2005

The Gilded Age & The Frontier Military: Society And Culture At Fort Assinniboine, Montana Territory, 1879 - 1905, Jeffrey Johnson

Jeffrey A. Johnson

Examines how the social norms of the Gilded Age and the decrease in Indian activity shaped life at Fort Assinniboine as a Victorian-era bastion of "civilization" in the Montana Territory. Established in 1879 and completed in 1881, the fort embodied late-19th-century views of respectability, race, and civilized living.

Review Of A Common Humanity: Kansas Populism And The Battle For Justice And Equality, 1854-1903 By O. Gene Clanton, Jeffrey Johnson Dec 2005

Review Of A Common Humanity: Kansas Populism And The Battle For Justice And Equality, 1854-1903 By O. Gene Clanton, Jeffrey Johnson

Jeffrey A. Johnson

Across the landscape of modern American politics, the "Populist moment," as Lawrence Goodwyn's 1976 study labeled it, has fascinated scholars. Indeed, late nineteenth-century Populism posed a vocal and effectual political voice for Gilded Age America's discontented. Since his original 1969 study, Kansas Populism: Ideas and Men, O. Gene Clanton has meticulously examined the fundamental role of Kansa, Populists in shaping local and national politics. A Common Humanity, with great efficacy, revisits and reinterprets Kansas's Populism as a fight for fundamental working-class rights and agrarian values, amidst industrialization gone awry.
