Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note:
Includes bibliographical references (pages 367-396) and index.
Formatted Contents Note:
Introduction: Ben Tillman, agrarian rebel -- Mastery and its discontents -- Planters and the "gentlemen from Africa" -- The shotgun wedding of white supremacy and reform -- Farmers, dudes, white negroes, and the sun-browned goddess -- The mob and the state -- Every white man who is worthy of a vote -- The uses of a pitchfork -- Demagogues and disordered households -- Epilogue: The reconstruction of American democracy.
Summary, etc.:
This book traces the history of white male supremacy and its discontents from the era of plantation slavery to the age of Jim Crow. Friend and foe alike and generations of historians interpreted Tillman's physical and rhetorical violence in defense of white supremacy as a matter of racial and gender instinct. This book reveals that Tillman's white supremacy was a political program and social argument whose legacies continue to shape American life.
