Reforming Jim Crow

Oxford University Press

This chapter traces the ending of Jim Crow reform during the late 1940s as the problem of regime maintenance became more transparent and the order become increasingly subjected not only to external challenges, but to internal challenges posed by the different layers of discordant and sometimes conflicting commitments, aims, and understandings that underlay the maintenance of the order's legitimacy and power. While Jim Crow reform was one of the results of this process of regime maintenance, it also contributed to its ending. The chapter provides an analytic conclusion to this work, discussing how political scientists and historians have analyzed this era in southern and American politics and how a rethinking of this era along the lines presented in this book can help scholars to understand the long and difficult road of democratic development.
