Louisiana Hayride

By Harnett T. Kane
Morrow, 1941
471 pp. $3.00

This is the incredible but authentic story of Huey Long and of his gang which for a decade maintained a dictatorship over Louisiana. The book is of national, even international, significance, for as is indicated in the subtitle -- "The American Rehearsal for Dictatorship" -- this is the case history of a state in which "it did happen here."
