[DB91624] by Kevin Phillips. His book, “The Emerging Republican Majority”, published
in 1969 while he served in the Nixon administration as chief political and voting-patterns
analyst was the bible for the development of the Republican “southern Strategy”.

“the southern-dominated, biblically driven Washington GOP” ”a rogue coalition “which
he decries in the Preface to this month’s book.
