"In the face of the threat to the old order, Missourians pulled together to organize resistance against those aspects of industrialization that struck at established family and community values. They entered the political process with boycotts, strikes, and demonstrations. David Thelen analyzes the grass-roots patterns of resistance--from ragtime music and the social banditry of Jesse James to populism and progressivism." - rear wrap.
