GUEST: Charles Postel, Author of the award-winning book, The Populist Vision which won the Bancroft Prize and the Frederick Jackson Turner award. He is a professor of History at San Francisco State University. His new book is called Equality: An American Dilemma, 1866-1896.


BACKGROUND: The failings of capitalism and the rise of wealth inequality in the US has become a more and more common topic of political discussion. Communities of color in the US have long suffered disproportionately in terms of economic, racial, and gender justice. But that is no accident as my next guest describes in his timely history book, Equality: An American Dilemma 1866-1896.
