Abstract

Why did people vote for Wallace? Was his movement in any proper sense "fascist"? How was it organized? Did it have an ideology? Could some other demagogue rally his supporters again? Hunter College sociologist Jody Carlson answers these questions through a re-analysis of survey data gathered by others, and of Wallace speeches and campaign documents, interviews with Wallace staffers, and a perusal of secondary literature and newspaper stories-nearly all of the latter from the New York Times. Marred by a wooden writing style, a mechanistic organizing scheme, and extremely unsophisticated statistical data analyses, Carlson's book is objective and often interesting and will be a considerable resource for future historians of the "New Right."
