A narrative history, this book integrates recent scholarship on race and gender into the story of The South. In clear, succinct prose, it surveys the sweep of southern history from Jamestown to the present, with special attention to the Old South and to the social, economic, and political changes that have created the New South of today.

A concise, simple, narrative history is provided, leading readers into further analysis of southern history through absorbing narrative. New scholarship is integrated into the narrative. Balanced coverage of the South provides readers with equal coverage of the post-Civil War South and the Old South (five chapters dedicated to each).
