“Out of the Shadows”
The introduction outlines the “white backlash” argument and shows how it is the most popular means of explaining southern politics after 1945. The argument is then questioned and a more ambiguous legacy for the backlash is posited. The choice of Georgia as a case study is justified and the divisions within the southern state Democratic parties, and between southern Democrats and the national party leadership, over race, economic, and social policy are described. The introduction ends with a summary of how these divisions shaped the 1948 Democratic National Convention.
