Populism in 19th Century America (Adam Slez)

On today’s Annex, we talk to Adam Slez from the University of Virginia. Adam is the author of The Making of the Populist Movement: State, Market, and Party on the Western Frontier (2020, Oxford), and an expert on 19th century American political populism. Adam tells us the story of the original Populist movement in the late-19th century Dakotas, and reflects on what the history of populism can teach us about political populism today.
