Publisher's Summary

The latter third of the 20th century was a time of fundamental political transition across the South as increasing numbers of voters began to choose Republican candidates over Democrats. Yet in the 1980s and '90s, reform-focused policymaking - from better schools to improved highways and health care - flourished in Tennessee. This was the work of moderate leaders from both parties who had a capacity to work together "across the aisle".

The Tennessee story, as the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham observes in his foreword to this book, offers striking examples of bipartisan cooperation on many policy fronts - and a mode of governing that provides lessons for America in this frustrating era of partisan stalemate.
