From the Publisher"An engagingly written and conceptually original study that significantly enhances our understanding of how southern migration redefined the United States. Gregory makes great use of the life stories of individuals, both ordinary and famous to illustrate the broader transformations he describes. . . . An enormously informative study of value to all students of modern America."
— Journal of American Ethnic History
"Likely to become a standard title in the bibliography of important works on twentieth century American history."
— Arkansas Libraries
"Outstanding. . . . On the leading edge of a growing interdisciplinary literature . . . a must-read for all scholars and students."

"Gregory sets a new standard. . . . His work will serve as a model as future scholars extend his insights."
— Canadian Journal of History
"This well-researched and documented work will now be required reading for historians and sociologists interested in the impact of internal migration on American society. . . . This is solid scholarship that integrates a significant amount of secondary sources while introducing the reader to an array of original work. It will remain pertinent for years to come, and should spawn additional research."
