This is a gracefully written narrative of the entire sweep of southern history, from the first settlement by Native Americans through the Civil War. The South Through Time is the most up-to-date, analytical, and stylishly written history of the region available on the market. Comprehensive, interpretive, and inclusive, with much attention given to politics, society, economics, culture, religion, women, and blacks, it offers a discussion of regional variation within the South and broadens its coverage beyond the traditional emphasis on the Atlantic seaboard states.
Its comprehensive coverage of the history of the Southern U.S. makes this an appropriate reference work for writers and researchers.
Second edition of a textbook which synthesizes recent scholarship to present the latest accepted interpretations on such topics as slavery, the causes of the Civil War, women's history, the civil rights movement, and recent southern politics. Intended for advanced undergraduates and lay historians. A list of volume one's contents are included. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
