This was an amazingly good book to explain the history of North Carolina politics and how things really divide. Though dated, and I doubt anyone would use John Edwards as the front-man for a faction these days, it would still be a "goodread" to understand things at a deeper level than you ever could from the media. Luebke should know, he's been in the North Carolina state assembly for decades.

It was long and scattered. The idea was good but the execution of the material was awful and made it hard to read.
