'Conned' takes us on a journey through America, detailing the revival of anti-democratic laws that came of age in the post-Civil War segregationist South. From the Pacific Northwest to Miami, with stops in a dozen states in between, this book shows how this problem has played a decisive role in elections nationwide.
