Campbell, Tracy

The politics of despair; power and resistance in the tobacco wars

The University Press of Kentucky, Lexington. 1993, xii, 223p., dj. "Shortly after 1900, tens of thousands of tobacco growers throughout Kentucky and Tennessee convulsed the region for nearly a decade in a revolt against the monopolistic practices of the American Tobacco Company. Though the revolt known as the Tobacco wars remains one of the most remarkable insurgencies in the history of rural America, it is also one of the more misunderstood." - dj
