The Dynamic Dominion tells the dramatic story of Virginia's political transformation from the Second World War to the Reagan Revolution. The cradle of American democracy - and thus of the democratic movement that is sweeping the globe today - the venerable Old Dominion has emerged again in the second half of the 20th century as a dynamic political pace setter for the nation.
