Annotation The explosive labor disputes of the 1930's in the agricultural fields of Depression-era California was integral to the development of modern conservatism. Business leaders created a new style of politics: corporate funding of grassroots groups, military-style intelligence gathering against political enemies, professional campaign consultants, and alliances between religious and economic conservatives. They created the organizations that launched the careers of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Unrated.
