The Age of Segregation: Race Relations in the South, 1890-1945 Edited by Robert Haws Essays by Derrick Bell, Mary Frances Berry, Dan Carter, Al-Tony Gilmore, Robert Higgs, and George Tindall In the decade of the 1890s, the southern states of the still-healing union institutionalized a system of laws governing race relations which has been described alternately as the South's second peculiar institution and, bluntly, as apartheid. That system of proscribed race relations and separation consigned black southerners to a status little removed from slavery. The essays in The Age of Segregation: Race Relations in the South, 1890-1945, delivered by major scholars just after America's bicentennial, concentrate on the economic and social conditions of blacks and whites living under the sinister orthodoxy of Jim Crow. This book is second in a three-part investigation which begins with What Was Freedom's Price? and concludes with Have We Overcome? Race Relations since Brown, 1954-1979. All three are available again in paperback from University Press of Mississippi. Robert Haws is Chair of the Department of Public Policy Leadership at the University of Mississippi.
