From the Publisher"An unusually rich and dense portrait. . . . Schultz's compelling, detailed account illuminates the basic fact of southern history: the two races have always been inextricably bound together. . . . Although Schultz scrupulously eschews romanticizing what Martin Luther King Jr. called 'the intimacy of life' between rural blacks and whites, his work corrects some of the best-publicized recent chronicles of southern life in this period."
—The Atlantic Monthly
“Mark Schultz illuminates a shadowy corner of the South with vivid depictions of work, race relations, and violence in Hancock County, Georgia. By connecting the memories of Hancock residents, past and present, with a trove of documentary evidence and then situating his evidence in the context of historical and autobiographical writing about the region, Schultz constructs a thoughtful, careful, and revealing study of race in the rural South during the twentieth century.” —Robert C. McMath Jr., professor of history, Georgia Institute of Technology
“The Rural Face of White Supremacy is an important book, sure to attract attention and help shape our view of race relations in the twentieth-century South."
—J. Morgan Kousser, professor of history and social sciences, California Institute of Technology
