Intentionally plural, Southern Cultures, the journal of the Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was founded in 1993 to present all sides of the American South, from sorority sisters to Pocahontas, from kudzu to the blues. This volume collects 27 essays from the journal's first 15 years, bringing together some of the most memorable and engaging essays as well as some of those most requested for use in courses. Contributors include C. Vann Woodward, Drew Gilpin Faust, Charles Reagan Wilson, Catherine Bishir, John Shelton Reed, and Tim Tyson.
"Each essay, whether written by an established scholar or someone not as well known, is well worth reading and studying. . . . Southern Cultures has been enlivening the study of our region for more than fifteen years now. May it continue to do so for at least fifty more!"
— The Journal of Southern History
"Brings a lively, sometimes contrarian take to its area of study, combining academic rigor and a welcome accessibility."
— Carolina Alumni Review
