Baptized in blood : the religion of the Lost Cause, 1865-1920 by Charles Reagan Wilson( )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV>Southerners may have abandoned their dream of a political nation after Appomattox, but they preserved their cultural identity by blending Christian rhetoric and symbols with the rhetoric and imagery of Confederate tradition. Out of defeat emerged a civil religion that embodied the Lost Cause. As Charles Reagan Wilson writes in his new preface, "The Lost Cause version of the regional civil religion was a powerful expression, and recent scholarship affirms its continuing power in the minds of many white southerners."</DIV>

Southern missions : the religion of the American South in global perspective by Charles Reagan Wilson( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern Missions places the religious history of The American South in a global context. The global connections of southern religion reflect a tradition within the American South that historians have failed to examine. This study sweeps from the diversity of Christian and Jewish groups in the colonial South to the contemporary migration of ethnic groups and their religious traditions previously little known in the South. Perhaps most notably, gender emerges as a key analytical category for understanding the global reach of religion in the American South
Science & medicine by James G Thomas( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Science and medicine have been critical to southern history and the formation of southern culture. For three centuries, scientists in the South have documented the lush natural world around them and set a lasting tradition of inquiry. The medical history of the region, however, has been at times tragic. Disease, death, and generations of poor health have been the legacy of slavery, the plantation economy, rural life, and poorly planned cities. The essays in this volume explore this legacy as well as recent developments in technology, research, and medicine in the South. Subjects include natural history, slave health, medicine in the Civil War, public health, eugenics, HIV/AIDS, environmental health, and the rise of research institutions and hospitals, to name but a few. With 38 thematic essays, 44 topical entries, and a comprehensive overview essay, this volume offers an authoritative reference to science and medicine in the American South."--Publisher's website

The new encyclopedia of southern culture by University of Mississippi( )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evangelical Protestant groups have dominated religious life in the South since the early nineteenth century. Even as the conservative Protestantism typically associated with the South has risen in social and political prominence throughout the United States in recent decades, however, religious culture in the South itself has grown increasingly diverse. The region has seen a surge of immigration from other parts of the United States as well as from Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East, bringing increased visibility to Catholicism, Islam, and Asian religions in the once solidly Protestant Christian South

New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture: Volume 3: History
Myth, manners, and memory by Charles Reagan Wilson( )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture addresses the cultural, social, and intellectual terrain of myth, manners, and historical memory in the American South. Evaluating how a distinct southern identity has been created, recreated, and performed through memories that blur the line between fact and fiction, this volume paints a broad, multihued picture of the region seen through the lenses of belief and cultural practice
Race( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is no denying that race is a critical issue in understanding the South. However, this concluding volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture challenges previous understandings, revealing the region's rich, ever-expanding diversity and providing new explorations of race relations. In 36 thematic and 29 topical essays, contributors examine such subjects as the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, Japanese American incarceration in the South, relations between African Americans and Native Americans, Chinese men adopting Mexican identities, Latino religious practices, and Vietnamese life in the region. Together the essays paint a nuanced portrait of how concepts of race in the South have influenced its history, art, politics, and culture beyond the familiar binary of black and white."--Publisher's website

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What southerners do, where they go, and what they expect to accomplish in their spare time, their "leisure," reveals much about their cultural values, class and racial similarities and differences, and historical perspectives.

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Southern music has flourished as a meeting ground for the traditions of West African and European peoples, leading to the evolution of various traditional folk genres, bluegrass, country, jazz, gospel, rock, blues, and southern hip-hop.

5 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The agricultural section consists of 25 thematic entries that explore issues such as Native American agricultural practices, plantations, and sustainable agriculture. Thirty-eight shorter pieces cover key crops of the region--from tobacco to Christmas trees--as well as issues of historic and emerging interest--from insects and insecticides to migrant labor. The section on industry and commerce contains 13 thematic entries in which contributors address topics such as the economic impact of military bases, resistance to industrialization, and black business. Thirty-six topical entries explore particular industries, such as textiles, timber, automobiles, and banking, as well as individuals--including Henry W. Grady and Sam M. Walton--whose ideas and enterprises have helped shape the modern South

Gender( )

Virginia, and the Memphis sanitation workers' strike, with its slogan, "I AM A MAN."

This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture surveys the dynamic environmental forces that have shaped human culture in the region--and the ways humans have shaped their environment. Articles examine how the South's ecology, physiography, and climate have influenced southerners--not only as a daily fact of life but also as a metaphor for understanding culture and identity
Ethnicity by University of Mississippi( )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contributors identify 88 major ethnic groups that have lived in the South from the Mississippian Period (1000-1600 C.E.) to the present
