Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An excellent contribution to an understanding of modern developments in studies of Appalachia."
Arthur G. Neal, Journal of American Culture

"Readers come away with some fine specifics but also a real feel for the state of regional scholarship."
Appalachian Heritage

"Culture, Class, and Politics is a fitting tribute to Ronald Lewis' lifetime of work. The articles are pertinent [and] frequently break new ground..."
Kenneth R. BaileyWest Virginia History

"The essays are well written and researched, are infused with historiography, and offer nuance, complexity, and pluralism to a region—not to mention a state—once seen as unitary and ripe for the 'benefits' of civilization."
Chad Berry, Journal of Southern History
