Description:

One of the most important developments in American politics has been the growing prominence of the Southern states in the national political landscape. The first edition of The New Politics of the Old South broke new ground by examining Southern political trends at the end of the twentieth century. Now extensively revised and updated, the second edition looks toward the future of politics in the South and continues the unique state-by-state analysis of political behavior written by the country's leading scholars of Southern politics. Designed to be adopted for courses on Southern political culture, but accessible to any interested reader, this book traces the shifting trends of the Southern electorate and explains its growing influence on the course of national politics.
