Joseph Crespino received his Ph.D. from Stanford University and is currently Assistant Professor of History at Emory University. He is the author of a book-in-progress, THE LAST DAYS OF JIM CROW: DESEGREGATION AND THE EVOLUTION OF SOUTHERN CONSERVATISM, under contract to Princeton University Press as part of the Politics and Society in Twentieth-Century America series. His pre-circulated material is drawn from the latter chapters of his book project, including sections on the conservative southern attack against “de facto” segregation in the North and the political and legal battles over racial policies at private Christian schools in Mississippi.
