About the book:

Former New York Times Atlanta bureau chief Applebome argues that the South is the region which is increasingly defining the whole United States. The roots of the major national debates on conservative politics, race, guns and states' rights are in the South--debates which the South once was losing, but has now reshaped. In a chapter on George Wallace, Applebome traces the 1994 Republican take-over of Congress back to Wallace's racially charged campaigns that lost the white South for the Democratic party, changing the American political landscape. Applebome makes race the central issue, but also explores other southern influences like country music and Southern Baptism, and lets Southerners talk for themselves.
