Overview

More than thirty years after its original publication, V. O. Key's classic remains the most influential book on its subject. Its author, one of the nation's most astute observers, drew on more than five hundred interviews with Southerners to illuminate the political process in the South and in the nation.
Key's book explains party alignments within states, internal factional competition, and the influence of the South upon Washington. It also probes the nature of the electorate, voting restrictions, and political operating procedures. This reprint of the original edition includes a new introduction by Alexander Heard and a profile of the author by William C. Havard.

"A monumental accomplishment in the field of political investigation."
—Hodding Carter, New York Times

"The raw truth of southern political behavior."
—C. Vann Woodward, Yale Review

"[This book] should be on the 'must' list of any student of American politics."
—Ralph J. Bunche
    
V.O. Key (1908-1963) taught political science at the University of California, Los Angeles, and at Johns Hopkins, Yale, and Harvard universities.
