"Scholars have long searched for the central theme of southern history, and this volume is a major contribution to that quest."
—Charles Reagan Wilson, coeditor of The Encyclopedia of Southern Culture
"Can't we all just get along? If we ever do, will it be because the South has shown America the way? Twelve authors . . . explore that paradoxical possibility in The South As an American Problem."
"A superb volume that deserves a wide readership."
As editors Larry J. Griffin and Don H. Doyle point out, no single approach could clarify the complexities underlying this persistent notion of a "Problem South." Representing a diversity of backgrounds and interests, the writings in this volume are the products of strong and independent minds that cut across disciplines, disagree among themselves, blend contemporary and historical insights, and confront conventional wisdom and expedient generalities.
Filled with fresh insights into the dynamics of the region's long-troubled relationship with the rest of the nation, this volume allows us all to view the current state and future course of the South, as well as its link to the broader culture and polity, in a new light.
