This course provides an overview of the distinctive politics of the eleven-state South from the previous century to the modern day. We will examine both regional similarities and inter-state differences and analyze the major factors that have contributed to the region's changing politics. The rise of the Republican Party, the erosion of the region’s previous Democratic Party dominance, and the political mobilization of African Americans will be topics of particular interest. We will also study the personalities and events that shaped the political decisions in individual states and the influence that the South has had in national politics.
