The rise and decline of the Redneck Riviera : an insider's history of the Florida-Alabama coast by Harvey H Jackson( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rise and Decline of the Redneck Riviera traces the development of the Florida-Alabama coast as a tourist destination from the late 1920s and early 1930s, when it was sparsely populated with "small fishing villages," through to the tragic and devastating BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010.????Harvey H. Jackson III focuses on the stretch of coast from Mobile Bay and Gulf Shores, Alabama, east to Panama City, Florida, an area known as the "Redneck Riviera." Jackson explores the rise of this area as a vacation destination for the lower South's middle- and working-class families following World War II, the building boom of the 1950s and 1960s, and the emergence of the Spring Break "season." From the late sixties through 1979, severe hurricanes destroyed many small motels, cafes, bars, and early cottages that gave the small beach towns their essential character. A second building boom ensued in the 1980s dominated by high-rise condominiums and large resort hotels. Jackson traces the tensions surrounding the gentrification of the late 1980s and 1990s and the collapse of the housing market in 2008. While his major focus is on the social, cultural, and economic development, he also documents the environmental and financial impacts of natural disasters and the politics of beach access and dune and sea turtle protection.????The Rise and Decline of the Redneck Riviera is the culmination of sixteen years of research drawn from local newspapers, interviews, documentaries, community histories, and several scholarly studies that have addressed parts of this region's history. From his 1950s-built family vacation cottage in Seagrove Beach, Florida, and on frequent trips to the Alabama coast, Jackson witnessed the changes that have come to the area and has recorded them in a personal, in-depth look at the history and culture of the coast
Sports and recreation by Charles Reagan Wilson( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture offers an authoritative and readable reference to the culture of sports and recreation in the American South, surveying the various activities in which southerners engage in their nonwork hours, as well as attitudes surrounding those activities
A century of controversy : constitutional reform in Alabama by Bailey Thomson( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely examination of Alabama's severely criticized state constitution will serve as an indispensable guide for legislators and citizens considering reform of the outdated document. Alabama's present constitution, adopted in 1901, is widely viewed as the source of many, if not most, of the state's historic difficulties and inequities. Chief among these is a poorly funded school system, an imbalanced tax system that favors special business interests, legislated racism, and unchecked urban sprawl. Many citizens believe that, after 100 years of overburdening amendments a

Oh, what a loansome time I had : the Civil War letters of Major William Morel Moxley, Eighteenth Alabama Infantry, and Emily Beck Moxley by William Morel Moxley( )

2 editions published between 1753 and 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most surviving correspondence of the Civil War period was written by members of a literate, elite class; few collections exist in which the woman's letters to her soldier husband have been preserved. Here, in the exchange between William and Emily Moxley, a working-class farm couple from Coffee County, Alabama, we see vividly an often-neglected aspect of the Civil War experience: the hardships of civilian life on the home front. Emily's moving letters to her husband, startling in their immediacy and detail, chronicle such difficulties as a desperate lack of food and clothing for her family, the

The Mitcham war of Clarke County, Alabama by Harvey H Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In August of 1893, "between four and five hundred heavily armed men" roamed a remote area in north central Clarke County, Alabama, searching for members of a gang they called the "Mitchamites." Those they hunted were believed to be responsible for the outbreak of lawlessness that plagued the county for over three years. Some claimed "Mitchamites" had committed as many as five murders. After two weeks this "mob" or "posse" (which it was still debated) dispersed, leaving in its wake at least four men dead, a region in ruins and a people terrified. No "Mitchamite", nor any of the men who hunted them down, were ever brought to trial, This was the Mitcham War. It really happened." -- Book text
