Summary From preface: This book provides a descriptive analysis and critical discussion of the origins, politics, and ideology of Massive Resistance, the right-wing movement that surfaced in the mid-1950's as the white South's response to the United States Supreme Court's desegregation decision. The main emphasis is on describing the development stages through which Massive Resistance evolved and analyzing the interrelationships of mythic ideas and political action in each of the stages.
