Overview

In this, the re-titled second edition of Society and Culture in the Slave South, J. William Harris selects the most recent and original scholarship in the field of the antebellum South published since 1992, when the first edition appeared. The present volume illustrates both the continuities and new developments in antebellum Southern history, starting from the work of Eugene Genovese and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, and moving into work that challenges their traditional reading of the slave South as a "paternalist" society. The collection also features an introduction to the historiography of the slave South, and a "Guide to Further Reading."
