Steven Lawson focuses on the Second Reconstruction the struggle of blacks to gain political power in the South through the ballot-which both whites and black perceived to be a key element in the civil rights process.

Examining the struggle of civil rights groups to enfranchise Negroes, Lawson also analyzes the responses of federal and local officials to those efforts. He describes the various techniques from the white primary, the poll tax, literacy tests, and restrictive registration procedures through sheer intimidation that were developed by white southerners to perpetuate disfranchisement and the sundry methods used by blacks and their white allies to challenge them.
