A masterful study of Florida politics. Gary R. Mormino, author of "Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams" In this sweeping overview of modern Florida politics, Colburn challenges the country s preconceived notions of the Sunshine State s political leanings. [It] is the result of a lifetime of observing and analyzing a once small and rural state that has transformed itself, in less than fifty years, into a political powerhouse and national weathervane. Governor Reubin O D. Askew A solid piece of scholarship and a comprehensive survey of state politics over the past sixty-five years deserving of a place on the bookshelf of any thoughtful Floridian, or non-Floridian, concerned about the past, present and future of the state. "Florida Historical Quarterly" Places Florida s gubernatorial politics since 1940 in the context of the state s remarkable cultural, economic, and demographic transformation. Recommended. "Choice" Concise, insightful, and readable. "St. Petersburg Times" An insightful analysis of how the Democrats lost and the GOP gained the most important swing state in the nation.
