    A very readable book!! Anybody in America would find it interesting!

    I read this book back in the 1970 when I was still in my twenties. I enjoyed this book especially for it candor and it politically inclined Subject: namely Huey Long. Senator, Governor and manipulater. Had he not been assassinated I do believe he would have challenged FDR in the 1936 Presidential election. This is an excellent book and ought to be on every bookshelf in the country.

    Huey Long

    This is an outstanding biography, primarily political but personal as well (with Long, it was hard to tell where one ended and the other began). Huey was by no means foreordained to greatness; one could see in him the snake-oil salesman from his first days in the business world, seemingly setting himself up for a fall. But fall he did not, and once he entered the realm of politics he had found his true metier. From his 'service' on the Public Service Commission, through his battles with the New Orleans machine, to election campaigns for Governor and Senator, to his 'manupilation' of FDR, the book hums with Huey's sly populism and mastery of the political process. A great read.

    Williams was Great

    Huey Long is an indepth look at one of the most colorful politicians in American history. T. Harry Williams not only was an outstanding author but he was a wonderful teacher.
