MEDIA REVIEWS

"In its originality, its rich scholarship and sheer readability, Southern Crossing offers a fascinating overview of the South that should find much use in college classrooms and among more general readers."--Georgia Historical Quarterly


"[T]his shorter version has a far more unified organization centered around the three themes of daily life, public life (largely politics), and cultural life. Additional reorganization improves the study's presentation...Ayers's eye for detail, which made his full-length work so attractive, is left intact."--Robert C. Kenzer, University of Richmond
