Regional Identity and Behavior / Edition 1by Max Sugar
Pub. Date: 02/28/2002
Publisher: Springer US
Having conducted studies on premature infants and adolescent parenthood, Sugar (Louisiana State U. and Tulane U.) began to wonder why there were marked differences among different states and areas of the US in the rates of general health, education, substance abuse, sexually transmitted diseases, unwed motherhood, and similar conditions. He found four regional identities on the mainland, corresponding to the four earliest British North American colonies, and posits that the various cultural legacies have affected identity development and behavioral patterns differently in each region.
