The Paradox of Tarheel Politics


The Paradox of Tarheel Politics Long time Raleigh reporter Rob Christensen has written a book about the unique politics of our state and the diverse cast of characters who have been political leaders in North Carolina. His book, The Paradox of Tar Heel Politics: The Personalities, Elections, and Events That Shaped Modern North Carolina, attempts to answer questions such as how the same state can produce politicians as different as Jesse Helms and John Edwards.
