South Writ Large’s Fall 2014 issue features contributions about politics, which has always played an important role in shaping the history of both the American South and the broader nation from the early days of the framing of the Constitution to our most recent election. Indeed, many of the country’s most recent presidents hail from the South – think of Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. In this issue, we are thrilled to have assembled a diverse group of voices – observers, participants, and commentators – who discuss a range of ideas about Southern politics past and present. With the holiday season upon us, why not turn the injunction not to talk politics on its head?
The opinions of our contributors are their own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of South Writ Large and its editors.
