In Pursuit of Unity, Michael Perman presents a comprehensive analysis of the South's political history. In the 1800s, the region endured almost continuous political crisis--nullification, secession, Reconstruction, the Populist revolt, and disfranchisement. For most of the twentieth century, the region was dominated by a one-party system, the "Solid South," that ensured both political unity internally and political influence in Washington. But in both centuries, the South suffered from the noncompetitive, one-party politics that differentiated it from the rest of the country. Since the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, Perman argues, the South's political distinctiveness has come to an end, as has its pursuit of unity.

Book Description:

"Michael Perman has written a masterful introduction to the complexities of southern political history. Pursuit of Unity identifies and explains the main themes of southern political life over two centuries. This remarkable achievement, a model of clear writing about matters of consequence, should be of great interest to general readers and scholars interested in the impact of the South on American politics."--Merle Black, coauthor of Divided America: The Ferocious Power Struggle in American Politics

He has written or edited seven books in American history, including Struggle for Mastery: Disfranchisement in the South, 1888-1908 and Emancipation and Reconstruction.
