Overview

Incorporating the enormous amount of very sophisticated revisionist scholarship that has appeared over the past 25 years, this book provides a consistent, overall reinterpretation of southern history — pre-1607 to the end of the Civil War — offering a less fact-filled, more narrative and more interpretative approach that expands the concept of southern history both chronologically and geographically. Reflects the author's first-hand familiarity with the newest scholarship — as the editor of the Journal of Southern History and co-editor of a major study of southern historiography, Interpreting Southern History. Explains why things happened the way they did rather than just telling what happened. Tells more about the entire South — not just the eastern seaboard. Features better, more extensive coverage of Indians, blacks, and women than earlier histories of the South. Offers insights gained by what is now called a "gendered analysis." Introduces and explores new research on topics such as slavery and women's history.For anyone interested in the history of the South or Southern civilization.
