The new politics of the old South : an introduction to Southern politics by Scott E Buchanan( )

32 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 1,935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now in its fifth edition, The New Politics of the Old South is the best and most comprehensive analysis and history of political behaviors and shifting demographics in America's Southern states. Edited by leading scholars Charles S. Bullock III and Mark J. Rozell, this book has been updated through the 2012 elections to provide the most accurate and useful snapshot of the state of Southern politics and the ways in which they have developed over time. The Southern electorate is a fascinating, dynamic body politic, and the study of its evolution is paramount to understanding the broader political developments occurring at a national level. While accessible to any interested reader, this edition illuminates the South's essential and growing role in the study, and the story, of American politics. -- from back cover
David Duke and the politics of race in the South by John C Kuzenski( )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalists have thoroughly documented David Duke's rise to prominence in Louisiana politics, but until now, few intensive analyses of the Duke phenomenon have been undertaken. This new collection identifies the significant junctures of Duke's political career, from its earliest beginnings to his recent campaigns for Governor, the Senate, and the Presidency. Through a variety of methods and approaches, the contributors to this work advance our understanding of what made this former Klansman a significant political force, and of how and why he very nearly succeeded in his attempts to gain higher office. The authors contend that the racial overtones of the 1950s and 1960s, both explicit and implicit, have returned in the 1990s in a more subtle, polished, and somehow socially acceptable way. They argue convincingly that changes in electoral politics throughout the South provide the structural basis for this "rebirth" of racially charged political campaigns. Even as messenger supplanted message in the rise of David Duke, however, one simple observation remained true: The politics of the South - and Louisiana in particular - remain rooted at least partly in, as V.O. Key phrased it, "the Negro question." The first work to study Duke and the politics of race entirely from a rigorous political science perspective, this collection makes a considerable contribution to our understanding of Duke's popularity, his constituencies, and the reasons for both his successes and his failures

The Three Governors controversy : skullduggery, machinations, and the decline of Georgia's progressive politics by Charles S Bullock( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The death of Georgia governor-elect Eugene Talmadge in late 1946 launched a constitutional crisis that ranks as one of the most unusual political events in U.S. history. The state had three active governors at once, each declaring that he was the true elected official: Herman Talmadge was chosen by the Georgia General Assembly to replace his father, Eugene; Melvin Thompson argued that he had the strongest claim by virtue of being the newly elected lieutenant governor; and Ellis Arnall, the outgoing governor, refused to step down until it was clearer who his successor would be. This is the first full-length examination of that episode, which wasn't just a crazy quirk of Georgia politics (though it was that) but was also the decisive battle in a struggle between the state's progressive and rustic forces that had continued since the onset of the Great Depression. In 1946, rural forces aided by the county unit system, Jim Crow intimidation of black voters, and the Talmadge machine's "loyal 100,000" voters, united to claim the governorship. In the aftermath, progressive political forces in Georgia would shrink into obscurity for the better part of a generation. Here is the story of how the political, governmental, and Jim Crow social institutions not only defeated Georgia's progressive forces but forestalled their effectiveness for a decade and a half. -- from dust jacket
Key states, high stakes : Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and the 2010 elections by Charles S Bullock( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 2010 elections were one of the most highly anticipated midterm elections in our nation's recent history. After the historic 2008 election, in which America elected its first black president, Sarah Palin's involvement and the emergence of the Tea Party in the 2010 Congressional elections had the potential to transform the composition of Congress and set the stage for the nation's politics for the next decade, or even the next generation. In this new edited volume, Charles S. Bullock III collects original contributions from top political scientists to evaluate Sarah Palin and the Tea Party's role in the 2010 midterm elections. Key States, High Stakes: Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and the 2010 Elections focuses on states where Republicans had the chance to pick up Senate seats, as well as examining GOP Senate primaries if they involved a Palin or a Tea Party nominee facing an establishment favorite. Bullock concludes the anthology with a chapter on the legacy of the Tea Party and of Sarah Palin on American politics."--Publisher's site

The rise and fall of the Voting Rights Act by Charles S Bullock( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In tracing the development of the Voting Rights Act from its inception, Charles S. Bullock III, Ronald Keith Gaddie, and Justin J. Wert begin by exploring the political and legal aspects of the Jim Crow electoral regime. Detailing both the subsequent struggle to enact the law and its impact, they explain why the Voting Rights Act was necessary. The authors draw on court cases and election data to bring their discussion to the present with an examination of the 2006 revision and renewal of the act, and its role in shaping the southern political environment in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, when Barack Obama was chosen. Bullock, Gaddie, and Wert go on to closely evaluate the 2013 Shelby County decision, describing how the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court created an appellate environment that made the act ripe for a challenge

The political battle over congressional redistricting by William J Miller( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Engler, former Governor of Michigan, once claimed that redistricting is one of the purest actions a legislative body can take. Academicians and political leaders alike, however, have regularly debated the ideal way by to redistrict national and state legislatures. Rather than being the pure process that Governor Engler envisioned, redistricting has led to repeated court battles waged on such traditional democratic values as one person, one vote, and minority rights. Instead of being an opportunity to help ensure maximum representation for the citizens, the process has become a cat and mouse game in many states with citizen representation seemingly the farthest idea from anyone's mind. From a purely political perspective, those in power in the state legislature at the time of redistricting largely act like they have unilateral authority to do as they please. In this volume, contributors discuss why such an assumption is concerning in the modern political environment
The triumph of voting rights in the South by Charles S Bullock( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Voting Rights Act of 1965 achieved what two constitutional amendments and three civil rights acts could not: giving African Americans in the South access to the ballot free from restriction or intimidation. The most exhaustive treatment of elections and race in the region in sixty years, The Triumph of Voting Rights in the South explores the impact of that landmark legislation and highlights lingering concerns about minority political participation."--Jacket

Coercion to compliance : or how great expectations in Washington are actually realized at the local level, this being the saga of school desegregation in the South as told by two sympathetic observers : lessons on getting things done by Harrell R Rodgers( Book )

12 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a study of individual behavior manifested in the desegregation process of 31 Georgia school districts from 1965 to 1974. Major objectives of the study are to glean insight into the variables that determine whether school officials involved would comply with the law and to assess the impact of Federal desegregation guidelines. The literature on compliance attitudes and behavior is reviewed. The Georgia communities in the study sample are described and some activities undertaken in reaction to integration orders are detailed. In an attempt to measure change over time, variables in the Georgia situation are defined as coercion, black activism, organized white opposition to desegregation, and superintendent attitudes, while the dependent variable is defined as the ratio of black to white students in each school. Coercion is concluded to have been the most important factor in achieving desegregation. Compliance with desegregation mandates is discussed in relation to citizen attitudes toward law obedience. The processes by which Federal agencies began to threaten withholding educational funds to recalcitrant districts is explored. Changes instituted as the schools in the sample began to comply with desegregation guidelines are outlined. Implications of the findings for legal impact analyses, for using law as an agent of change, and for achieving school integration in the North are suggested. A bibliography of works on desegregation compliance and impact is also included. (Author/GC)
