Description


The New Dominion analyzes six key statewide elections to explore the demographic, cultural, and economic changes that drove the transformation of the state's politics and shaped the political Virginia of today. Countering the common narrative that the shifting politics of Virginia is a recent phenomenon driven by population growth in the urban corridor, the contributors to this volume consider the antecedents to the rise of Virginia as a two-party competitive state in the critical elections of the twentieth century that they profile.
