This chapter discusses the reasons for using Jacksonville, Florida, as a case study of Southern politics. It presents four reasons for selecting this city: the city's Southern historical relevance; the rise of the Republican Party in that region; the joining together of the city and county under consolidation in 1968 which launched a period of rapid change and economic growth for Jacksonville; and the representativeness of the study.

Keywords: Southern politics; case study; Jacksonville; Florida
