The Populist movement of the late nineteenth century represents one of the largest third-party challenges in American history. Throughout the South widespread drops in crop prices led to agrarian revolt, which contributed to its popularity. Yet, in the largely rural state of Louisiana, despite the political group's focus on empowering distressed farmers, this movement was far less successful. In Donna A. Barnes's "The Louisiana Populist Movement" it is the question of ineffectuality that makes the political case study of the Pelican state and Populism so intriguing. This book offers the definitive source for the history of the Louisiana Populist Movement as well as a multi-dimensional theoretical analysis of the factors behind the movement's failure to fully succeed.
