Originally published in 2006, Mississippi Politics quickly became the definitive work on the state's recent political history, campaigns, legislative battles, and litigation, as well as how Mississippi shaped and was shaped by national and regional trends.

A central theme of the 2006 edition was the state's gradual transition from a Democratic surety to a Republican stronghold. For this updated edition, authors Jere Nash and Andy Taggart examine the aftermath of the 2007 gubernatorial and 2008 presidential elections--and all the fireworks in between.

This new edition adds a chapter covering the last two years and includes analyses of the 2007 and 2008 statewide, legislative, and federal elections; the resignations of Senator Trent Lott and Congressman Chip Pickering; the indictments of Richard Scruggs and other prominent lawyers; President Barack Obama's influence on the state's 2008 voting dynamics; and the election of House Speaker Billy McCoy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In Mississippi Politics: The Struggle for Power, Nash and Taggart have done us a wonderful favor in reminding us where we have been in a way that clarifies where we are now."

--Marty Wiseman, The Sun-Herald


"A must-read for any serious student of Mississippi politics and a valuable reference for those who will study the subject in years to come. It's also a heckuva lot of fun."

--Sid Salter, The Clarion-Ledger


"An unlikely pairing, the opposing political team of Nash and Taggart has produced a readable, lively, and informative view of both sides of Mississippi's political coin."

--Nan Graves Goodman, Portico Jackson
