Sons of the Wild Jackass: The Nonpartisan League in North Dakota

Terry Shoptaugh discusses how the Nonpartisan League (NPL) came into existence, became a force in politics and government on the Great Plains, and influenced the nation’s agricultural policies throughout the 20th century.  The role of leadership in the League, a major part of the organization’s success -- and its subsequent decline – is a major part of the story.
