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 story of how the South became a two-party region is ultimately the story of two-party politics in America at the end of the 20th century. This is an account of growing competitiveness in Southern party politics and elections. It tracks Southern votes shifting economic, cultural and religious loyalties, black/white conflicts and interests during and after federal civil rights intervention and the struggles of candidates and officials.
