Crespino explains how white Mississippians linked their fight to preserve Jim Crow with other conservative causes - with evangelical Christians worried about liberalism infecting their churches, with cold warriors concerned about the Communist threat, and with parents worried about where and with whom their children were schooled."--BOOK JACKET."
