Charles Postel is an American historian specializing in politics, reform movements, populism, and the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.

He received a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2002. He is an Associate Professor of History at San Francisco State University and has written op-ed pieces for politico.com and Reuters.[1]

The Longview Institute said,

Elegantly written, meticulously researched, The Populist Vision is an enthralling history of the movement that created the most pervasive political impulse in American politics. Postel’s book has won both the Frederick Jackson Turner and Bancroft awards, which it justly deserves. His work also helps us to understand the actual Populist Vision that lies behind the superficial and shallow rhetoric to which we’ve been subjected during this election year.[2]
