This work is the first definitive answer based on factual surveys and data, rather than ideology and speculation, to the mystery of how to get poor white farmers to vote against their own interests and keep rich "plantation" oligarchs in power. The Professor shows how important it was, and is, for the regional powers to keep their franchise in ignorance and in fear. The "dixiefication" of the entire country, 60 years later, is all the more troubling, as northern monopolists adopted the same techniques--taking over the media, destroying the schools, and by filling public offices with empty suits, creating self-fulfilling prophesies of inept public institutions.
