Description

[paraphrasing Jim Hightower and Steven Lawson]

It warns the country the the ghosts of reactionary Southern politics are stalking the land.  Cochran argues that the Second Reconstruction of the South did not so much Americanize the region as it opened up the path for the Dixiefication of America.  This carefully argued and nuanced book is clearly accessible to the wide audience it deserves.  His book looks back so we can look forward, unite, and rebuild our democracy.
