The Apotheosis of Huey Long

  title={The Apotheosis of Huey Long},
  author={G. Jeansonne},
  pages={283 - 301}
The largely favorable depiction of Huey P. Long established principally by the late Professor T. Harry Williams and other Long biographers is questionable. Long did less than he claimed, others did more, and what he did was not lasting and institutional but ephemeral and opportunistic.
