"This is a book that anyone interested in South Carolina history, the emergence of the New South, and the southern press, so important to the regional culture, will find valuable. Clark has researched all the important manuscript collections and a wide variety of other sources. He also writes in a style that is lucid and imaginative." —Journal of Southern History


E. Culpepper Clark is Executive Assistant to the President at the University of Alabama, where he is also Professor with appointments in Speech Communication and History. He is the author of Francis Warrington Dawson and the Politics of Restoration: South Carolina, 1874-1889.


“Clark investigates the nature of post-Reconstruction politics in South Carolina by focusing on Dawson…an influential newspaper editor. [T]he book’s strength lies in the sophisticated analysis of the complexities with state politics, particularly the interest group conflict among the Redeemers, and of the nature of class friction among them, the Straightouts, and the farmers movement led by Bill Tillman.”—CHOICE
