From the election of Jimmy Carter to the wide defection of Democrats in the South to the Republican ticket in the Reagan/Bush years, Southern Democrats have played a crucial role in recent American national politics. With the 1992 election of President Clinton, they once again occupy a place at the center of the American political stage. A timely examination of this important phenomenon in American politics, Southern Democrats traces the history of this influential regional faction and gauges the extent and nature of Southern Democratic influence in congressional and presidential politics today.

Nicol Rae argues that the Southern Democrats remain a distinctive faction despite the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which initiated the end of the social and economic system that had previously bound them together. The only surviving political faction based on regional--rather than ideological--concerns, they have nevertheless evolved from being a deviant element within the party to coming closer to the national Democratic norm which is most apparent in civil rights issues.

Drawing on interviews with many southern politicians and memoirs and accounts of past campaigns, Rae deals with the success of Southern Democrat and Democratic Leadership Council leader Bill Clinton in winning the 1992 Democratic presidential nomination, and reveals the changing role of Southern Democrats in internal party politics and national elections. He concludes with an overall assessment of the present and future state of this important southern wing of the Democratic party.

About the Author:


Nicol C. Rae is Associate Professor of Political Science at Florida International University. He is the author of The Decline and Fall of the Liberal Republicans (Oxford, 1989).

Review:


"Nicol Rae's incisive analysis of the southern faction in the Democratic party demonstrates that a political scientist can write for a general audience with clarity and a sound historical perspective. Rae's study is a significant contribution to the literature on southern politics in the twentieth century....A worthwhile addition to syllabi for courses in American politics and recent United States history."--The Journal of Southern History


"With Southern Democrats, Nicol Rae continues his effort to reinvigorate the study of political factions, as intellectual focus and as a central element in American politics. The Southern Democrats have long been the effective fulcrum of much American politicking; Southern Democrats is essential reading for those who believe in having politics in their political science."--Byron E. Shafer, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of American Government, Nuffield College, Oxford


"Nicol Rae has written a thorough, penetrating analysis of this fascinating faction of the Democratic party, a study that is sensitive to all the nuances present in national and Southern politics. The extensive quotations from Rae's interviews with scores of prominent Southern Democratic politicians are gems!"--Alexander Lamis, Case Western Reserve University


"Southern Democrats is a useful introduction to one of the perennial enigmas of national politics....[Rae] is to be commended for directing our attention to the structure of American political parties, especially how they frame issues and how we select candidates."--Georgia Historical Quarterly


"...Rae's interpretation is reliable and orthodox."--American Politics Review
