The observations of foreigners have furnished one of the strongest traditions in the study of American life. Alton Hornsby's 'In the Cage" is a book in this great tradition. Hornsby's eyewitnesses of the Southern black man include novelists, educators, journalists, lawyers, historians, physicians, and theologians. Chronologically, the accounts offered in this book stretch from the end of Reconstruction to the eve of the New Deal.

African Americans in the post-emancipation South : the outsiders' view by Alton Hornsby( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study uses first-hand accounts and documents to attain glimpses of African American life in the post-emancipation South. Spanning from the 1860s through the New Deal this study incorporates a broad cross-section of the views of European travelers and Euro-American visitors from the North, based upon travel books as well as articles and essays from periodicals and scholarly journals. The study synthesizes the outsiders' observations and assesses their summaries' overall validity for increasing our understanding of the lives of blacks in the post-emancipation South. Furthermore, these accounts allow for a reconstruction of African American life and labor in the major aspects of black culture--religion, education, politics, criminal justice, employment and entrepreneurship, social life and status--of the times

Zell, we hardly knew ye : Senator Zell Miller and the politics of region, gender, class, and race, 2000-2005 by Alton Hornsby( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shortly after taking office as Georgia's appointed United States senator in 2002, following the death of incumbent Republican senator Paul Coverdell, former governor Zell Miller stunned the political world with his tilt away from a moderate-liberal to a conservative politician. He further shocked political leaders, particularly in his own Democratic party, when he openly embraced the candidacy of Republican president George W. Bush for reelection in 2004. In the interim, Miller voted for most of Bush's conservative agenda in Congress and lambasted his fellow Democrats, in and out of the Senate, as out of touch with contemporary American values. He also accused Democratic leaders of being overtly biased toward his native South. Most of these views were also expressed in his bestselling book, A National Party No More: The Conscience of a Conservative Democrat, which was published in 2003." "This book investigates what some Democrats have called "the Miller betrayal" in the context of the politics of region, class, gender, and race. It seeks to explain Miller's political turnabout by detailing his southern origins and his devotion to what he and other Southerners view as a unique southern heritage based upon Christian and patriotic values. Professor Hornsby insight-fully explores how Miller's "southern values" evolved and changed over time, leading to his oft-times radical swings in positions on major political, economical, and social issues. Prior to his term as senator in Washington, Miller had already acquired the name "Zig-Zag Zell" as a two-term Georgia governor." "While political leaders and journalists alike have exhaustively attempted to explain Zell's baffling political conversion, this is the first work to study the topic, derived from what scholars have defined as "southernism," in terms of basic historical and contemporary issues."--BOOK JACKET
