Overview

The importance of the South in the development of the United States has always been clear, but in recent decades the rise of the sunbelt-politically, economically, and culturally-has made the significance of the region's history all the more apparent. In The Human Tradition in the Old South, Professor James C. Klotter has gathered twelve insightful essays that explore the region's past and ponder its place in the broader story of the nation. This highly readable volume presents the South's rich and varied history through the lives of a wide range of individuals-men and women, African Americans, whites, and Native Americans from many different Southern states. Written by well-established scholars these mini-biographies collectively range in time from the late colonial/early national period to the present. Filled with lively stories of fascinating Southerners and the times in which they lived, The Human Tradition in the Old South is ideal for courses on Southern history, social history, race relations, and the American history survey course.

Editorial Reviews

John B. Boles
These dozen readable, fascinating biographical portraits offer wonderful insights into different aspects and different eras of Southern history. They exemplify the diversity of the region and indicate how a biographical approach can bring the past alive for students by humanizing it. An immensely teachable book.
James C. Cobb
The Human Tradition in the Old South offers thoughtful new observations on some prominent figures and revealing first perspectives on others less familiar. It reminds us forcefully that while, as the sum of its human parts, 'the South' may exist as face, the generic 'Southerner' is and always has been a fiction.
Edward L. Ayers
The Old South has always fascinated and confused those who think about American history. The biographies in this collection present an engaging and compelling collective portrait of a remarkably complicated place.
