Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The first five essays cover the changing nature of Southern power within the US Senate, party realignment, and evolving attitudes toward school desegregation, all pointing toward a fading of regional distinctiveness. Yet, additional essays on religion and politics, labor activities, and state political parties present evidence of continuing distinctiveness. Annotation c.

“The subject of how distinctive the South remains after rapid social and political change in recent years is of great public interest and is a constantly recurring question in the social sciences. The book offers some very innovative and valuable insights into this raging debate and makes a significant contribution to the research on contemporary southern politics.” —Stephen D. Shaffer, MississippiStateUniversity
