Roger L. Hart's clearly written book corrects several of the chief flaws in earlier works on Tennessee and replaces Daniel M. Robison's Bob Taylor and the Agrarian Revolt in Tennessee as the best starting place for students of the state's politics in the late-nineteenth century. Thoroughly researched and containing forty-five often ingeniously constructed tables, maps, and charts in the text, and thirty-two more in appendixes, Hart's work offers a full portrait of the shifting factions within the Democratic party from 1870 to 1896, and the various bolters from it-the "low taxers" of 1880, the "sky blues" of 1882, and the Populists of the 1890s.
