The South Through Time : A History of an American Region
A core text for one/two-semester, junior/senior/graduate-level courses in History of the South, Old South/New South, Southern Civilization, and Southern History; or a supplement for U.S. History courses or for specialized courses in southern history such as Race and Violence in Southern History, or Women in Southern History, or courses in southern literature, or African-American Studies. Incorporating the enormous amount of very sophisticated revisionist scholarship that has appeared during the past 25 years, this text provides a consistent, overall reinterpretation of all of southern history - pre-1607 to 1997 - offering a less fact-filled, more narrative and more interpretative approach that expands the concept of southern history both chronologically and geographically. Its exceptionally broad and current coverage allows students to see how problems, issues, and responses of the past impact the very South they live in or read about today.
