2 To be sure, scholars such as Jim Livingston and Martin Sklar have vigorously contested this narrative. See, for example, Martin J. Sklar, The United States as a Developing Country: Studies in U.S. History in the Progressive Era and the 1920s (New York: Cambridge University Press, 1992); and Livingston, Jim, “How the Left Has Won: Or, Why Is There Still Socialism in the United States,Jacobin 7–8 (Summer 2012), https:// www.jacobinmag.com/2012/08/how-the-left-has-won/.

3 For two historians' intriguing takes on how to view Sanders's socialism in historical perspective, see Eric Foner, “How Bernie Sanders Should Talk about Democratic Socialism,” The Nation, Oct. 21, 2015; and Leon Fink, “‘Liberal’? No. ‘Progressive’? Nah. How About ‘Democratic Socialist’?,” In These Times, Feb. 9, 2016. The documentary, “Eugene Debs: Trade Unionist, Socialist, Revolutionary,” (1979) is available at https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=w82pFvUq3o8.

Our gratitude to Tom Alter for allowing us to use this reversal that he first developed for his forthcoming dissertation. See Thomas E. Alter II, “Dirt Farmer Internationalists: The Meitzen Family, Three Generations of Farmer-Labor Radicals, 1848–1932,” (PhD diss., University of Illinois at Chicago, 2016).
