Overview

When the University of North Carolina Press joined with the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi to publish the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture in 1989, a pioneering reference work was born. The first reference book to deal exclusively with an American regional culture, the Encyclopedia has served as a model for many similar projects at the state and regional levels. In the years since the Encyclopedia was published, globalization, economic transformations, and other cultural shifts have profoundly changed the South.
Now, the Press and the Center have come together again to publish The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the original reference that reflects these changes and the newest scholarship about the region. Almost a decade in the making, this edition contains 24 individual volumes based on the thematic sections of the original Encyclopedia.
Now complete, The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture includes volumes covering everything from Religion (Volume 1) to Race (Volume 24). This set brings together for the first time all 24 volumes—in hardcover and in paperback—at significant savings off the regular retail price of the individual volumes.
