Origins of the New South, 1877-1913: A History of the South - A History of the South (Hardback)C. Vann Woodward (other)
- Publisher out of stock
After more than two decades, Origins of the New South is still recognised both as a classic in regional historiography and as the most perceptive account yet written on the period which spawned the New South.
Historian Sheldon Hackney recently summed it up this way:
""The pyramid still stands. Origins of the New South has survived relatively untarnished through twenty years of productive scholarship, including the eras of consensus and of the new radicalism...Woodward recognises both the likelihood of failure and the necessity of struggle. It is this profound ambiguity which makes his work so interesting. Like the myth of Sisyphus, Origins of the New South still speaks to our condition.""
This enlarged edition contains a new preface by the author and a critical essay on recent works by Charles B. Dew
