A scarce and important political history of Mississippi, intended by the author to lay plain the several mistakes he feels actors in the public arena have made. Jennings claims there is no reason why Mississippi should continue to lag behind her sister states, and he hopes that the publication of the present volume will do something to chide Mississippi's politicians into better decision- making, thus improving the state's lagging economy.
