“In this timely volume, Tim Boyd challenges one of the most prominent explanations for this shift: the ‘white backlash’ theory. Taking the political experience in Georgia as a case study, he makes a compelling argument that New South politics formed out of the factional differences within the state Democratic Party and not simply as a result of white reactions to the civil rights movement.”
