Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"Gordon Harvey's book addresses an important and generally neglected subject: the transition in southern politics and policymaking during the decade after the enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This solid study covers in considerable detail an important period in the history of the South." - American Historical Review "The education reforms of West [in South Carolina], Askew [in Florida] and Brewer [in Alabama] and the background against which they were forged are the focus of this informative study by Gordon Harvey." - The State (Columbia, SC) "A Question of Justice is well-written, engaging, and balanced. Harvey is fair and accurate in his assessments and succeeds in defining the issues that confronted both the white and black communities. The book will be an important addition to the existing literature on southern governors and will certainly prompt new debates over the true meaning of the term 'New South.'" - Georgia Historical Quarterly"
