The 1988 Presidential Election in the South: Continuity Amidst Change in Southern Party Politics

Synopsis

The decisive Republican victory in the 1988 Presidential and statewide elections in the South is the focus of this volume, which seeks to illuminate the events relevant to the contest and identify the resulting trends in political activity which will characterize future developments in the region. Arranged to provide both a Southwide and state-by-state review, each chapter highlights the unique political complexion of the state being discussed and also shows how its character fits into the overall picture of a constantly changing Southern political profile. Together they form a comprehensive analysis of the impact of the Republican success on the South as both a unified political voice and as an area rich in diversity.
