Sinclair Lewis’s 1935 novel of populism, politics, and power in America will make you believe in time-travel. This 2016 edition features a lively preface by historian Robert Bothwell, who draws some fascinating parallels between the political atmosphere of 1935 and that of 2016.
“Lewis’ [character] Windrip is a version of a rising demagogue of that time [Huey Long] ... Three-quarters of a century ago, Lewis argued that fascism and totalitarianism could happen here. Could it?"
