The African American heritage of Florida by David R Colburn( )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and held by 1,908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africans participated in all the Spanish explorations and settlements in Florida, as they did throughout the Spanish Americas. In Florida they helped establish St. Augustine and the free black community of Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose. Africans and African Americans fought in the many conflicts that wracked Florida, including the three Seminole Wars and the Civil War. Despite the oppressions of slavery and segregation, black Floridians struggled to establish their own communities, combat racism and economic deprivation, and negotiate the terms of their labor. Against overwhelming odds, they helped develop communities like Jacksonville, Tampa, and Miami, and they served as the critical labor force for the state's citrus, agricultural, and timber industries. For centuries, however, their heritage has been ignored. These twelve essays examine the rich and substantial African American heritage of Florida, documenting African American contributions to the state's history from the colonial era to the late twentieth century

The failure of term limits in Florida by Kathryn A Depalo( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From yellow dog Democrats to red state Republicans : Florida and its politics since 1940 by David R Colburn( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In From Yellow Dog Democrats to Red State Republicans, Colburn reveals how Florida gradually abandoned the traditions of race and personality that linked it to the Democratic Party and how the Republicans emerged as the dominant party in the state. Likely to raise hackles on both sides of the aisle, this dynamic history of modern Florida argues that the Sunshine State has become the political and demographic future of the nation." "Colburn focuses on the population growth and chaotic gubernatorial politics that have rocked the state since the 1940s, when it was a sleepy impoverished southern outpost. At the center of the story are the fascinating governors who played pivotal roles in every postwar development from Cracker to Sun Belt politics, from segregation to integration, from boosterism and modernization to economic and environmental crises. In the twenty-first century, he says, Florida is a dynamic, highly partisan, largely conservative state at the cultural, social, and economic Intersection of the Western Hemisphere."--BOOK JACKET

Florida began the twentieth century rooted in the Confederacy, the least populated of the Southern states, with a rural, agricultural, frontier society.

In Florida's megatrends, two of Florida's most respected scholars examine the evolution of the state, the remarkable changes that have shaped it and the relevant concerns facing Florida in the future from political, historical, sociological, economic and environmental perspectives. Includes information on African Americans, agriculture/farming, baby boomers, crime, Cuban Americans, Democratic Party, economy, education, environmental problems, ethnic and racial differences, Great Depression, Hispanic population, Latin American population, Old South, politics, population, Republican Party, segregation, senior population, taxes, tourism, transportation, 2000 presidential primary, white population, etc

Conservative hurricane : how Jeb Bush remade Florida by Matthew T Corrigan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few governors in modern history have altered the balance of power in their states as fundamentally as Jeb Bush did in Florida. Both hailed and reviled as the most consequential governor to be sworn into office in Tallahassee, Bush radically--and perhaps permanently--changed the dynamics of Florida politics. The first two-term Republican governor of a historically Democrat-voting state, Bush broadened the reach and bolstered the influence of the executive branch while drastically diminishing the roles of the legislature and the judiciary. During his second inaugural address, the small-government conservative dreamed of an idyllic Tallahassee free of government employees while presiding over the largest accumulation of gubernatorial authority in the state's history. It was the beginning of a new kind of conservative activism, one that only gained strength in the years after Bush left office and which has now spread across the country. Republican governors around the nation have lauded him as a trailblazer, and his path has become the roadmap to their victories, his rhetoric the talking points of nearly every election cycle since."--Publisher's website
