“A thorough and empirically-based (not exhausting!) discussion of the role of race in southern politics from the Civil War to the present.”
“I cannot praise the author enough for rising to the challenge of providing students with an accessible trip through time to show the emergence of the one-party South and how the South evolved over time.”
“A historically rich treatment of southern politics that successfully introduces students to the way social science is practiced today.”
“Thoughtful, meticulously researched, accessible to an undergraduate population.”
“The subfield of southern politics is sometimes criticized for focusing far too much on anecdotal evidence without having much of an empirical flavor. McKee remedies this.”
