CHOICE Review

The authors, political scientists at Cornell, Columbia, and Penn, ask an important question in this excellent study: how did the defeated, minority, white South manage to shape and manipulate the racial politics of the entire US so profoundly between Reconstruction and the New Deal? A cohesive bloc in Congress; a highly energetic commitment to white, Southern racial priorities and goals; and the willingness of many Northern legislators to accept Southern leadership on racial matters all contributed to the pattern. In addition, the Southern bloc's mastery of the tools of congressional power enabled it to shape the legislative process. For example, Southern lawmakers found ways to disperse political power in the House of Representatives, making it easier for them to control key legislative committees. Overall, this study demonstrates how members of a highly motivated minority in a democratic system can acquire influence far beyond their numbers. Aimed at professional scholars, graduate students, and specialists. Maps, charts, graphs, photographs, endnotes, detailed index. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through faculty.--Richard G. Lowe, emeritus, University of North Texas
