"The New Politics of the Old South continues to be one of my favorite books. It has contributions from some of the very best southern politics scholars, and offers important insights about this vitally important American region. The state-by-state approach provides a broad understanding of the South, but also identifies key intra-regional differences." -- Gibbs Knotts, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science, College of Charleston
"The latest edition of The New Politics of the Old South continues the standard of quality and comprehensive coverage established by previous editions. Overview chapters stress the distinctiveness of Southern politics over time and the critical role of African Americans. The twelve state chapters snap with lively writing, crackle with historical context, and pop with cutting edge scholarship. Individual state authors explore and explain Trump's triumph, redistricting battles, congressional conflicts, legislative clashes, and demographic and partisan transformation. Researchers, students and those interested in Southern politics will find a page-turner worthy of a real-life mystery. How has the South changed so dramatically over the past 60 years yet remained so politically unique? The writers track down the answers like Sherlock Holmes and present the findings like V.O. Key." -- Aubrey Jewett, Associate Professor, University of Central Florida
