A New History of the American South is an ambitious collection of fifteen essays written by a range of distinguished scholars that explore the history of the region from its earliest inhabitants to the dawn of the twenty-first century. Broken into three roughly equal parts, the chapters proceed in chronological order. Editor W. Fitzhugh Brundage’s introduction deftly lays the foundation for the collection by grappling with the challenges even defining the region over time as well as introducing several of the themes that bind this collection into a coherent whole. These include the often-overlooked diversity across the South in terms of its population, culture, and political economy.
