"During the past four decades, Charles Reagan Wilson has become a leading interpreter of the American South. Southern Way of Life, which he began writing in 1989, represents a culmination of Wilson’s distinguished career as a historian of southern culture. Informed by critical regionalist theory, he carefully defines the South as a highly diverse place that includes divergent races, ethnic groups, and LGBTQ subcultures. For those interested in a general and very thoughtful survey of the history of the South since 1865, Southern Way of Life will likely become a standard work."
