Read in conjunction with this "The Mind of the South" by W J Cash. (1940)
Key masterfully designs the book. Each Southern state is given a chapter, where Key defines its predominant theme, and explains the characteristics thereof. Then he regroups all of the individual state infomation into a concise desciption, with accompanying analysis, of the political environment of the region as a whole.
Important to note is Key's unique ability to observe and explain everyday occurences in a profound fashion. For those who simply want information concerning one state or wish to skip the description of other states, this is not the book for you. To understand fully Key's arguments, one needs to read all of the chapters as each individual chapter provides substance for the overall analysis of the South.
A remarkable work! 5 out of 5 stars.
