Right Out of California: the 1930s and the Big Business Roots of Modern Conservatism

In a major reassessment of modern conservatism, noted historian Kathryn S. Olmsted reexamines the explosive labor disputes in the agricultural fields of Depression-era California, the cauldron that inspired a generation of artists and writers and that triggered the intervention of FDR’s New Deal. Right Out of California tells how this brief moment of upheaval terrified business leaders into rethinking their relationship to American politics – a narrative that pits a ruthless generation of growers against a passionate cast of reformers, writers, and revolutionaries.
