NOTES

1 Loewen, James W., Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong (New York: The New Press, 2007 [1995]), 8. And historiography is not just for The Experts. Elsewhere, Loewen compellingly argues that “understanding historiography is one of the great gifts a history course can impart to its students.” See Teaching What Really Happened: How to Avoid the Tyranny of the Textbook and Get Students Excited About Doing History (New York: Teachers College Press, 2009), 211.

2 On Beck and Obama, see Johnston, Robert D., “Long Live Teddy/Death to Woodrow: The Polarized Politics of The Progressive Era in the 2012 Election,” Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era 13(July 2014): 411–43. A good portion of Obama's interest in the reformers of a century ago likely came via his counselor, John Podesta, who wrote a fairly learned book about the Progressive Era and its legacy for progressivism today. See Podesta, , The Power of Progress: How America's Progressives Can (Once Again) Save Our Economy, Our Climate, and Our Country (New York: Crown, 2008). Of course, as Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Podesta was one of the chief targets of WikiLeaks; in the process, the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era actually got swept up in Julian Assange's muckraking net; John Halpin to John Podesta, “The Power of Progress rises again!,” email, Feb. 18, 2015, Wikileaks, https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/20436.

3 For dueling perspectives, see Charles Postel, “If Trump and Sanders are Both Populist, Then What Does Populist Mean?,” The American Historian, Feb. 2016); and Michael Kazin, “How Can Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders Both Be ‘Populist’?,”. New York Times, Mar. 22, 2016. See also illuminating, Postel'sWhat We Talk About When We Talk About Populism,” Raritan 37 (Fall 2017): 133–55.
