This book attempts to get at the intersection of politics and religion in the American South. The chapters in this book strongly suggest that in the South, religion has worked hand in hand with political and social conservatism and that the region's politics have, in turn, reflected its fundamentally conservative religious temperament. This book explores the Southern Baptist racial ideology during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, factionalism and ethnic politics in Atlanta, Georgia, and traditional family values.

Keywords: politics; religion; American South; political conservatism; social conservatism; racial ideology; Southern Baptist; factionalism; ethnic politics; family values
