For at least two centuries, the South's economy, politics, religion, race relations, fiction, music, foodways and more have figured prominently in nearly all facets of American life. In A New History of the American South, W. Fitzhugh Brundage joins a stellar group of accomplished historians in gracefully weaving a new narrative of Southern history from its ancient past to the present. This groundbreaking work draws on both well-established and new currents in scholarship, including global and Atlantic world history, histories of African diaspora, environmental history, and more. The volume also considers the experiences of all people of the South: Black, white, Indigenous, female, male, poor, elite, and more. Together, the essays compose a seamless, cogent, and engaging work that can be read cover to cover or sampled at leisure.
Contributors are Peter A. Coclanis, Gregory P. Downs, Laura F. Edwards, Robbie Ethridge, Kari Frederickson, Paul Harvey, Kenneth R. Janken, Martha S. Jones, Blair L. M. Kelley, Kate Masur, Michael A. McDonnell, Scott Reynolds Nelson, Jim Rice, Natalie Ring, and Jon F. Sensbach.
W. Fitzhugh Brundage is the William Umstead Distinguished Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Laura F. Edwards is the Class of 1921 Bicentennial Professor in the History of American Law and Liberty at Princeton University. Jon F. Sensbach is professor of history at the University of Florida.
"Here is a book that lives up to its title, for this history is indeed new in many dimensions: its impressive cast of scholars, its attention to the latest discoveries, and its openness to surprising perspectives." —Edward L. Ayers, author of Southern Journey: The Migrations of the American South, 1790-2020
