The Old South: New Studies of Society and Culture / Edition 2by J. William Harris
Pub. Date: 11/28/2007
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
The antebellum South remains one of the most studied and written about periods of American history. For years, the terms of the debates were set in large part by the work of Eugene Genovese and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese. Recently, however, historians have moved past the classic debates and have taken the discussion into new territories. In this new edition of Society and Culture in the Slave South, J. William Harris has chosen selections that present recent provocative viewpoints on the antebellum South, works that reveal both the focus and diversity of the ongoing revisions of historical thought. Including essays on paternalism, class, women and gender, culture and morality. The Old South offers readers selections that illustrate both the continuities and the new developments in historical scholarship on the antebellum South.
