Politics in the new South : republicanism, race, and leadership in the twentieth century by Richard K Scher( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition of Politics in the New South takes the remarkable story of the transformation of southern politics in the twentieth century up through the virtual triumph of southern Republicanism in the mid-1990s. The book explores not only the fundamental changes that have occurred - in party politics, political leadership, voting rights and black participation - but also the strong continuities in the political culture of the South despite a reversal of party allegiances. There is no richer or more readable introduction to the politics of the South - a region that shows us important aspects of both our past and our future."--Jacket
Political campaigns in the United States by Richard K Scher( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an interpretive analysis of political campaigns in America: instead of focusing on how campaigns are designed and run, it investigates the role campaigns play in our American politics, and the close symbiosis between campaigns and those politics.

This fresh look at southern politics clarifies the recent and dramatic development of party competition in the South. Southern politics has changed dramatically during the past half century. While new developments have touched virtually every aspect of the region's politics, change has been especially marked in the South's political party and electoral systems. Southern Parties and Elections explores the contemporary developments in party realignment and examines the relationship between regional party change and electoral behavior and the larger patterns in national pol
Florida : an example of nation-building? by Richard K Scher( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The theme of this paper is that Florida has a long way to go in building a sense of nationhood and of fostering a spirit of community among its residents. Government has a crucial role to play in the process, but it will not be easy, given the political culture of the state which has never served to nuture these feelings and attitudes but in fact has worked against their development."--Leaf 27
