"LSU professor White's latest is lively and well researched."Publishers Weekly

Outrageous demagogue or charismatic visionary? In this powerful new biography, Richard D. White, Jr.,
brings Huey Long to life in all his blazing, controversial glory.

From the moment he took office as governor in 1928 to the day an assassin's bullet cut him down in1935,
Huey Long wielded all but dictatorial control over the state of Louisiana. A man of shameless ambition and
ruthless vindictiveness, Huey orchestrated elections, hired and fired thousands at will, and deployed the
state militia as his personal police force. And yet, paradoxically, as governor and later as senator, Huey
did more good for the state's poor and uneducated than any politician before or since.

With Kingfish, White has crafted a balanced, lucid, and absolutely spellbinding portrait of the life and
times of the most incendiary figure in American politics.

Richard D. White, Jr. is the Marjorie B. Owens Excellence in Teaching Professor at Louisiana State University and received the LSU College of Business Award. He is the author of Roosevelt the Reformer and a contributor to The International Encyclopedia of Public Policy and Administration. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Patrick Cullen, a native of Massachusetts, is a graduate of The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., where he continues to live and work in the theater.
