The new politics of the old South : an introduction to Southern politics by R. Bruce Anderson( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 976 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

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 )

11 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 323 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)

Key states, high stakes : Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and the 2010 elections by Charles S Bullock III( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 295 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 Three Governors controversy : skullduggery, machinations, and the decline of Georgia's progressive politics by Charles S Bullock( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 74 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
