Overview

In The Human Tradition in the New South, historian James C. Klotter brings together twelve biographical essays that explore the region's political, economic, and social development since the Civil War. Like all books in this series, these essays chronicle the lives of ordinary Americans whose lives and contributions help to highlight the great transformations that occurred in the South.

With profiles ranging from Winnie Davis to Dizzy Dean, from Ralph David Abernathy to Harland Sanders, The Human Tradition in the New South brings to life a dynamic and vibrant region and is an excellent resource for courses in Southern history, race relations, social history, and the American history survey.

Editorial Reviews

Wayne Flynt
Deep down most southerners are story tellers. Their narratives unite them across boundaries of race, age, gender, class, and culture. Thought of that way, The Human Tradition in the New South is the most southern kind of book because it allows some gifted story tellers to describe some long forgotten people.
