In this pioneering study of what it means to be Southern, John Shelton Reed uses a survey to examine Southerners as an ethnic group. He finds that such experiences as urban residence, travel, education, and media exposure generally erode such traditional attitudes as ethnocentrism, racism, fatalism, localism, authoritarianism, xenophobia, and resistance to innovation. At the same time, however, Reed shows that these modernizing experiences heighten regIonal consciousness among Southerners. Reed concludes that "despite mass society, Southerners are and apparently will remain 'different'; because of [mass society], they will remain aware of their difference." In this, he writes, Southerners are like other cultural minorities in American society.

During the civil rights movement, epic battles for justice were fought in the streets, at lunch counters, and in the classrooms of the American South. Just as many battles were waged, however, in the hearts and minds of ordinary white southerners whose world became unrecognizable to them. Jason Sokol’s vivid and unprecedented account of white southerners’ attitudes and actions, related in their own words, reveals in a new light the contradictory mixture of stubborn resistance and pragmatic acceptance–as well as the startling and unexpected personal transformations–with which they greeted the enforcement of legal equality. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This work documents the many roles filled by Southern blacks in the last decades of slavery, the Civil War years, and the following period of Reconstruction. African Americans suffered and resisted bondage in virtually every aspect of their lives, but persevered through centuries of brutality to their present place at the center of American life. Utilizing statements made by former slaves and other sources close to them, the author takes a close look at the culture and lifestyle of this proud people in the final decades of slavery, their experiences of being in the military and fighting in the Civil War, and the active role taken by the Southern blacks during Reconstruction.

The South often seems like a foreign country to newcomers from other parts of the United States. And for people from other countries, Southern customs and lifestyle can be even more bewildering. For anyone who has ever wondered why the style of conducting busines in the South is different or why some Southerners are still fighting the Civil War, this book will be a valuable guide. The informative and entertaining essays will help new Southerners understand and appreciate the region and its people, and they will also serve as a refresher course on the South for those who are comfortably settled in. Each of the essays adopts a different perspective to suggest just how the South is different from other American regions. In turn, they examine the special meaning of history for Southerners, the boundaries of the South as a geographical and as an imaginary region, the rhetoric and the reality of Southern race relations, the South's change from a rural to a metropolitan culture, the myth of the Southern belle and the reality of Southern women's lives, the political metamorphosis that turned the Solid South into the Solid Republican South, and the recent transformation of the poorest region in the country into an economic wonder called the Sunbelt. Readers will learn that when Southerners ask strangers what church they attend, the intent is not to pry but to be friendly. They will also discover that "where the kudzu grows" is one of the best ways to define where the South is located. The essays offer the insights of both shcolarship and experience, for the contributors -- most of them originally non-Southerners -- learned about this region by living in it as well as studying it. The contributors are Julia Kirk Blackwelder, Paul D. Escott, David R. Goldfield, Nell Irvin Painter, John Shelton Reed, and Thomas E. Terrill.

Southerners, Too? challenges the view that "southern heritage" refers to white southerners only by revealing that, historically and culturally, African Americans have been integral to southern life and history. In much of the public and scholarly debates on the display of the Confederate flag, "southern heritage" has been seen in the context of the white south. Although there are some published works on the black southerner, in the debate and in some of the literature, African Americans are either invisible or appear in an ambivalent manner. The intent of this work is to contribute to, and encourage, a new focus on the Black South.
