The twelve essays in this book, several published here for the first time, represent some of Tony Badger’s best work in his ongoing examination of how white liberal southern politicians who came to prominence in the New Deal and World War II handled the race issue when it became central to politics in the 1950s and 1960s. Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s thought a new generation of southerners would wrestle Congress back from the conservatives. The Supreme Court thought that responsible southern leaders would lead their communities to general school desegregation after the Brown decision. John F. Kennedy believed that moderate southern leaders would, with government support, facilitate peaceful racial change. Badger’s writings demonstrate how all of these hopes were misplaced. Badger shows time and time again that moderates did not control southern politics. Southern liberal politicians for the most part were paralyzed by their fear that ordinary southerners were all-too-aroused by the threat of integration and were reluctant to offer a coherent alternative to the conservative strategy of resistance.

From the Back Cover:

"No commentator on twentieth century America, especially the American South, writes more perceptively, or more engagingly, than Tony Badger. Viewing the United States from a British perspective, he matches his extraordinary command of sources and a vivid style to a transtlantic angle of vision."
--William E. Leuchtenburg, author of The White House Looks South

"This admirable volume, containing not only Tony Badger's many deeply researched articles and talks about Southern political history but also a fascinating and lively autobiographical essay, is a wonderful and welcome publication."
--James Patterson, author of Grand Expectations: The United States, 1945-1974

"Tony Badger is the leading political historian of the South between 1930 and 1970. Tony is a master essayist, capable of grand synthesis while at the same time proving that political history requires a precision craftsmanship."
--Jane Daily, author of The Politics of Race in Post-Emancipation Virginia

"A hearty feast.... There is coherent shape here reflecting Badger's own persistance in the reexamination of the twentieth-century American South -- politics and policy, questions of color, rights, and identity, and matters rural and agricultural."
--Jack Kirby, author of Rural Worlds Lost: The American South, 1920-1960

"This is a very important subject, especially as scholars try to compose a multiple and comprehensive account of the civil rights movement and how it affected both blacks and whites....This is a valuable collection by a distinguished scholar."
--Seven Lawson, author of To Secure These Rights: President Harry S. Truman's Committee on Civil Rights

Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s thought a new generation of southerners would wrestle Congress back from the conservatives. Political scientists such as V. O.

Badger shows that time and time again that moderates did not control southern politics. Southern liberal politicians for the most part were paralyzed by their fear that ordinary southerners were all-too-aroused by the threat of integration and were reluctant to offer a coherent alternative to the conservative strategy of resistance. Indeed, liberal politicians became irrelevant in the 1960s as African Americans and the federal government dictated the timetable of racial change. It was southern business leaders and a new generation of New South politicians who mediated the transition to desegregation. Seller Inventory # AAN9781557288448
