9780816531479: George Hunt: Arizona's Crusading Seven-Term Governor

George W. P. Hunt was a highly colorful Arizona politician. A territorial representative and seven-time Arizona state governor, Hunt joined Woodrow Wilson in making the Democratic Party the party of Progressive reform. This political biography follows Hunt through his years in the territorial legislature, and then as governor. Author David R. Berman’s well-researched and detailed work features Hunt’s battles to stem the powers of large corporations, democratize the political system, defend labor rights, reform the prison system, abolish the death penalty, and protect Arizona’s interests in the Colorado River. He had a special concern for the down and out. He found the "forgotten man" long before Franklin Roosevelt.

Hunt was proof that style and physical appearance neither guarantee nor preclude political success, for the three-hundred-pound man of odd dress and bumbling speech had a political career that spanned the state’s Populism of the 1890s to the 1930s New Deal. Driven by causes, he was very active in public office but took little pleasure in doing the job. Called names by opponents and embarrassed by his lack of formal education, Hunt sometimes showed rage, self-pity, and bitterness at what he saw as betrayals and conspiracies against him.

The author assesses Hunt’s successes and failings as a political leader and take-charge governor struggling to produce results in a political system hostile to executive authority. Berman offers a nuanced look at Arizona’s first governor, providing an important new understanding of Arizona’s complex political history.

About the Author:

David R. Berman is a professor emeritus of political science and a senior research fellow at the Morrison Institute for Public Policy, Arizona State University. His publications include ten books and more than seventy papers, book chapters, and articles on state and local government, politics, and public policy.

Review:

“Offers a fascinating portrait of a brand of politics that long ago disappeared, at least in Arizona. This will be a cornerstone book for anyone who wants to understand Arizona’s political history.”—Daniel Herman, author of Rim Country Exodus: A Story of Conquest, Renewal, and Race in the Making

“This well-documented biography opens a window into Arizona politics through the life of Hunt.”—Southwestern Historical Quarterly

“An excellent overview of Hunt’s political career, and with it, a good general history of Arizona’s early political history as a state.”—The Journal of Arizona History

“Berman has resurrected one of Arizona’s great political leaders from the neglected backwaters of history.”—Western Historical Quarterly

“This book will be insightful for those seeking to understand Arizona’s political history, regional progressivism, and progressivism in the Southwest, and the role of governors in the first third of the twentieth century.”—Pacific Historical Review
