If you like:
1) A challenge!
2) Great writing!
3) To be stretched!
This is the book for you! Definitely not a casual read, this book
loosely mirrors the political life of Huey Long of Louisiana. This story
is steeped in moral issues - loyalty, right, power, love - an
incredible piece of literature. It asks the question -does power
corrupt? A great classic!!

— Karen L.


Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic book is generally regarded as the finest novel ever written on American politics. It describes the career of Willie Stark, a back-country lawyer whose idealism is overcome by his lust for power.

Praise For…


"To read it in this new edition is to be struck again by its raw power, its urgency and relevance."--New Orleans Times-Picayune

"The original editors adjusted the novel to the tastes and styles of the time, but now we can read it as it was written. The result is a more complicated and emotionally charged--and longer--story."--Chicago Tribune
