The New Politics of the Old South Summary

The New Politics of the Old South: An Introduction to Southern Politics by Charles S. Bullock, III

The New Politics of the Old South, Sixth Edition is available August 2017. Paperback ISBN 9781538100158 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.

The New Politics of the Old South Reviews

Bullock and Rozell have produced a unique edited book on southern politics. The editors have pulled together a series of case studies on each of the southern states that highlight how politics has changed in the modern era. The editors suggest that the southern states have diverged away from the rest of the country and have lost their cherished position in the American political system. Themes of religion, race, realignment, and demographic change appear through each unit. The contributors of the various chapters have done an excellent job of highlighting how southern political systems are responding to change in the country and within their own states, particularly with regard to Latinos and Hispanics. The strength of this volume is that each case study is data rich and the analysis is timely. . . .[T]he individual case studies should be required reading for any research project on specific states. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers, upper-division undergraduate students, graduate students, and research faculty. * CHOICE *
The 5th edition of The New Politics of the Old South covers all the "new" trends, data and research while maintaining the high quality of the "old" editions. Bullock and Rozell have brought together another superior team of authors who keep the writing uniformly crisp and the conclusions uniformly thoughtful and thought provoking. The overall theme of the 5th edition is that the Republican and Democratic parties have switched places in the south (although the new GOP is not quite as dominant as the Dixiecrats of old) but that the south, ironically, is still out of step with the rest of the country since Democrats have emerged as the dominant party in most other regions. This book is strongly recommended for students, researchers and the general public alike as it is that rare work that achieves a perfect balance of cutting edge scholarship and accessible, and entertaining, storytelling. V.O. Key would have loved this book - more importantly, so will you! -- Aubrey Jewett, professor of political science, University of Central Florida
