Summary
"This book examines the dynamics of the American party system and explores how contemporary American politics was formed. Specifically, it asks how the Democrats, a party that had its main area of support in the South, could become sufficiently competitive in the American North as to be able to construct a national political majority. It rejects the conventional account, based on "realignment theory," that between the end of Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Revolution, the base level of support for the Democratic Party varied greatly from one era to another."--BOOK JACKET
