Minding the South by John Shelton Reed( )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than thirty years John Shelton Reed has been 'minding' the South--watching over it, providing commentary upon it. He is the author or editor of thirteen books about the South, and despite his disclaimer regarding formal study of Southern history, Reed has read widely and in depth about the South. His primary focus is upon Southerners' present-day culture and consciousness, but he knows that one must approach the South historically in order to understand the place and its people"--Page 4 of cover
Dixie Bohemia : a French Quarter circle in the 1920s by John Shelton Reed( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years following World War I, the New Orleans French Quarter attracted artists and writers with its low rents, faded charm, and colorful street life. By the 1920s Jackson Square had become the center of a vibrant if short-lived bohemia. A young William Faulkner and his roommate William Spratling, an artist who taught at Tulane University, resided among the "artful and crafty ones of the French Quarter." In Dixie Bohemia John Shelton Reed introduces Faulkner's circle of friends -- ranging from the distinguished Sherwood Anderson to a gender-bending Mardi Gras costume designer -- and brings to life the people and places of New Orleans in the Jazz Age
Holy smoke : the big book of North Carolina barbecue by John Shelton Reed( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Detailed instructions for cooking barbecue at home are included here, along with recipes for the side dishes traditionally served in Tar Heel barbecue restaurants, such as coleslaw and hushpuppies. People who cook for a living share their thoughts about the past and future of North Carolina barbecue in a special section of interviews with pitmasters. North Carolina barbecue may be an endangered cuisine, the authors caution. Of course, they have some words on why this matters and what to do about it"--Page 2 of cover

9 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of the first long-term, wide-scale secondary analysis of survey data concerning the enduring effects of schooling are presented in this work. The findings are detailed in four chapters covering the enduring effects of schooling on knowledge; the influence of other variables; the role of continuing learning, specifically through mass media exposure and personal information seeking; and the relative effectiveness of secondary and higher education. The conclusion discusses the need for further studies of enduring effects through secondary and semisecondary analysis. Appendixes contain basic tables, tables containing detailed findings on knowledge, surveys and questions used, and tables on the effects of education when other variables are controlled. (Fl)

My tears spoiled my aim and other reflections on Southern culture by John Shelton Reed( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

White Southern attitudes toward violence, from more-or-less-traditional homicides - romantic triangles and lovers' quarrels - to brawls that target everything from dogs to vending machines. And he cites his own "My Tears Spoiled My Aim" as one of the great unrecorded country songs of our time: My tears spoiled my aim; that's why you're not dead. I blew a hole in the wall two feet above the bed. I couldn't see where you were at, my tears were fallin' so. I tried to shoot

The Disappearing South? : studies in regional change and continuity by Robert P Steed( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is widespread agreement that the South has changed dramatically since the end of World War II. Social, demographic, economic, and political changes have altered significantly the region long considered the nation's most distinctive. There is less agreement, however, about the extent to which the forces of nationalization have eroded the major elements of Southern distinctiveness. Although this volume does not purport to settle the debate on Southern political change, it does present a variety of recent evidence that helps put this important debate into perspe

William Spratling, his life and art by Taylor Dowe Littleton( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this lavishly illustrated biography of silversmith and graphic artist William Spratling (1900--1967), Taylor D. Littleton reintroduces one of the most fascinating American expatriates of the early twentieth century. Best known for his revolutionary silver designs, Spratling influenced an entire generation of Mexican and American silversmiths and transformed the tiny village of Taxco into the "Florence of Mexico." Littleton widens the context of Spratling's popular reputation by examining the formative periods in his life and art that preceded his brilliant entrepreneurial experiment in the Las Delicias workshop in Taxco, which left a permanent mark on Mexico's artistic orientation and economic life.Spratling made a fortune manufacturing and designing silver, but his true life's work was to conserve, redeem, and interpret the ancient culture of his adopted country. He explained for North American audiences the paintings of Mexico's modern masters and earned distinction as a learned and early collector of pre-Columbian art. Spratling and his workshop gradually became a visible and culturally attractive link between a steady stream of notable American visitors and the country they wanted to see and experience.Spratling had the rare good fortune to witness his own reputation--as one of the most admired Americans in Mexico--assume legendary status before his death. William Spratling, His Life and Art vividly reconstructs this richly diverse life whose unique aesthetic legacy is but a part of its larger cultural achievement of profoundly influencing Americans' attitudes toward a civilization different from their own.In this lavishly illustrated biography of silversmith and graphic artist William Spratling (1900--1967), Taylor D.
