I think every Southerner should read the history works of C. Vann Woodward. He brings a great style to writing history with a sense of humor and definitely "irony" as he so frequently says in the book. I read this first, then read BIRTH OF THE NEW SOUTH 1877-1913. My motives for reading this period were to discover the events and attitudes that shaped the lives of my family. Oh yes, I understand more now than I did as a youngster, when I asked my grandmother about those alive back in the day.....she told me, "Let the dead rest in peace. They had their troubles when alive, and deserve to be left in peace." And that puzzled me for years, as well as piqued my curiosity. Well, this book helped answer WHY, and I can intuit much from family events.
The volume I read was the digital or ebook version. For that edition, I give both titles only FOUR STARS, not docking the imminent historian but docking the poorly edited digital form. They did NOT edit out the scanning...
As awesomely insightful as so many reviewers have said it it.
This book is a must read for any southern history scholar. The argument presented still holds true today, one must include every perspective if one is going to talk about the South.
