Description

In this comprehensive new text, J. David Woodard integrates the best features of a state-by-state focus on politics in the southern states with a thematic overview of the region's social, economic, and political life. Notably, the text: profiles significant figures and events from the real world of politics; highlights vital dimensions of political culture (e.g., race, religion, and partisanship); navigates essential historical context; underscores the region's growing role in national politics; incorporates up-to-date coverage of ongoing controversies and trends; suggests a well-defined organizational structure for courses. Treating subjects as diverse as the confederate flag dispute, the role of women in society, and the region's military traditions, "The New Southern Politics" is an innovative and readable introduction designed to engage students and scholars alike. This book integrates the best features of a state-by-state focus on politics in the southern states with a thematic overview of the region's social, economic, and political life.
