In Southern Nation: Congress and White Supremacy after Reconstruction, three generations of political scientists or political historians offer a rewarding reexamination of a critical half-century of the history of race and policymaking in the South and the nation. Ira Katznelson, the author of Fear Itself: The New Deal and the Origins of Our Time (2013), was the dissertation advisor to John S. Lapinski, author of The Substance of Representation: Congress, Lawmaking, and American Political Development (2013), and he in turn was the graduate advisor to James A. Bateman, author of Disenfranchising Democracy: Constructing a Mass Electorate in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France (2018). To this project they bring their prodigious and complementary strengths, as they examine the mechanics of Congress, of how—and which—legislation got pushed through or thwarted.
