The book concludes with an overview of political developments in Georgia and the South from the 1970s to the 1990s. The continuity with the party divisions that were established after the 1960s civil rights laws is demonstrated. Colorblind rhetoric remained the most effective way of dealing with the politics of race in the South. The conclusion ends with a discussion of contemporary Democratic Party weakness in the South.
