Front Cover
NewSouth Books, 2010 - Political Science - 351 pages
America seems to have little sense of how the Civil Rights Movement actually played into southern politics over the second half of the twentieth century. This book reveals that, amid all the heroic history of that time, there is a fascinating story of stealth reconstruction i.e., the unheroic, quiet, practical, biracial work of some white politicians and black leaders, a story untold and unknown until now.
