Golden Apple-winning U-M history professor Matthew Lassiter’s new book, The Silent Majority: Suburban Politics in the Sunbelt South, is now available.
Lassiter studies the relationship between the suburbanization of America and national politics and culture.
Here’s a look:
Suburban sprawl transformed the political culture of the American South as much as the civil rights movement did during the second half of the twentieth century. The Silent Majority provides the first regionwide account of the suburbanization of the South from the perspective of corporate leaders, political activists, and especially of the ordinary families who lived in booming Sunbelt metropolises such as Atlanta, Charlotte, and Richmond.
