Summary
In Grass-Roots Socialism, James Green includes information about the party's propaganda techniques, especially those used in the lively newspapers that claimed fifty thousand subscribers in the Southwest by 1913, and information about the attractive summer camp meetings that drew thousands of poor white tenant farmers to week-long agitation and education sessions. In this broadly based study, Green examines such popular leaders as Oklahoma's Oscar Ameringer (the "Mark Twain of American Socialism"), "Red Tom" Hickey of Texas, and Kate Richards O'Hare, who was second only to Eugene Debs as a Socialist orator. - Back cover
