The dissertation challenges the existing historiography three ways. First, Ohio's Populists do not fit the agrarian-centered definitions of Populism offered by Hicks, Hofstadter, and Goodwyn. Second, whereas most historians argue that organized labor rejected farmers, appeals to enter into a producer-based political alliance, in Ohio the opposite was true. Third, scholars seeking to explain the triumph of pure and simple unionism within the AFL have failed to look at the activities of trade unionists working with the People's party. Scholars have sought to explain the rise of pure and simple unionism in hopes of understanding the conservative nature of modern American politics. They have noted that while European trade unionists were forming political parties to contest the emergence of corporate capitalism, American trade unionists rejected the primacy of political action and accepted the emergence of corporate capitalism
