A fine and insightful synthesis of a wealth of information. It draws a balanced and convincing portrait of the region's politics, with historical depth, and the presentation is clear, well organized, and thoroughly documented. (James L. Sundquist The Brookings Institution)

Format: Paperback
This is a must for any student of the South and its politics. It describes the South's conservative tendencies that derive from the traditional and individualistic political cultures. This helps explain why Republicans now have a slight advantage over a region once dominated by Democrats. Wonderfully written by experts on Southern politics
