Summary
"The transformation of southern politics over the past fifty years has been one of the most significant developments in American political life. The emergence of formidable Republican strength in the previously solid democratic South has generated a novel and highly competitive national battle for control of Congress. Tracing the slow and difficult rise of Republicans in the south over five decades, Earl and Merle Black tell the remarkable story of political upheaval." "The Rise of Southern Republicans provides an account of growing competitiveness in southern party politics and elections. Through extraordinary research and analysis, the authors track southern voters' shifting economic, cultural, and religious loyalties, black/white conflicts and interests during and after federal civil rights intervention, and the struggles and adaptations of congressional candidates and officials."--BOOK JACKET
