Away down South : a history of Southern identity by James C Cobb( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the seventeenth-century Cavaliers and Uncle Tom's Cabin to Civil Rights museums and today's conflicts over the Confederate flag, here is a portrait of southern identity, served in an engaging blend of history, literature, and popular culture. In this insightful book, written with dry wit and sharp insight, James C. Cobb explains how the South first came to be seen - and then came to see itself - as a region apart from the rest of America."--Jacket

Industrialization and southern society, 1877-1984 by James C Cobb( Book )

17 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1880s, Southern boosters saw the growth of industry as the only means of escaping the poverty that engulfed the postbellum South. In the long run, however, as James C. Cobb demonstrates in this illuminating book, industrial development left much of the South's poverty unrelieved and often reinforced rather than undermined its conservative social and political philosophy. The exploitation of the South's resources, largely by interests from outside the region, was not only perpetuated but in many ways strengthened as industrialization proceeded. The 20th Century brought increasing competi

Redefining Southern culture : mind and identity in the modern South by James C Cobb( Book )

Cobb, "surveys the remarkable story of southern identity and its persistence in the face of sweeping changes in the South's economy, society and political structure."--Jacket
The Brown decision, Jim Crow, and Southern identity by James C Cobb( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling was a watershed event in the fight against racial segregation in the United States. The recent fiftieth anniversary of Brown prompted a surge of tributes: books, television and radio specials, conferences, and speeches. At the same time, says James C. Cobb, it revealed a growing trend of dismissiveness and negativity toward Brown and other accomplishments of the civil rights movement. Writing as both a lauded historian and a white southerner from the last generation to grow up under southern apartheid, Cobb responds to what he sees as distortions of Brown's legacy and their implied disservice to those whom it inspired and empowered."--Jacket
Georgia odyssey by James C Cobb( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgia Odyssey is a panoramic survey of Georgia history, from British colony to international business mecca, from Jim Crow to Jimmy Carter, from Gone with the Wind to the 1990s. Originally published as part of The New Georgia Guide, this expanded version of Georgia Odyssey is an essential text for students and scholars. Historian James C. Cobb, a Georgia native, debunks familiar myths and reveals new insights in his interpretation of the state's complex past. Not all of the past is pleasant to recall, Cobb notes, but any attempt to understand the character and personality of contemporary Georgia must take into account its sometimes disturbing, sometimes appealing, but always rich and eventful historical odyssey

"The fifth volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture explores language and dialect in the South, including English and its numerous regional variants, Native American languages, and other non-English languages spoken over time by the region's immigrant communities." "Among the more than sixty entries are eleven on indigenous languages and major essays on French, Spanish, and German. Each of these provides both historical and contemporary perspectives, identifying the language's location, number of speakers, vitality, and sample distinctive features. The book acknowledges the role of immigration in spreading features of Southern English to other regions and countries and in bringing linguistic influences from Europe and Africa to Southern English. The fascinating patchwork of English dialects is also fully presented, from African American English, Gullah, and Cajun English to the English spoken in Appalachia, the Ozarks, the Outer Banks, the Chesapeake Bay Islands, Charleston, and elsewhere. Topical entries discuss ongoing changes in the pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar of English in the increasingly mobile South, as well as naming patterns, storytelling, preaching styles, and politeness, all of which deal with ways language is woven into southern culture." --Book Jacket
The new encyclopedia of Southern culture by Melissa Walker( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the economic culture of the South by pairing two categories that account for the ways many southerners have made their living. 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

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

3 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Potomac to the Gulf, artists were creating in the South even before it was recognized as a region. The South has contributed to America's cultural heritage with works as diverse as Benjamin Henry Latrobe's architectural plans for the nation's Capitol, the wares of the Newcomb Pottery, and Richard Clague's tonalist Louisiana bayou scenes. This comprehensive volume shows how, through the decades and centuries, the art of the South expanded from mimetic portraiture to sophisticated responses to national and international movements. The essays treat historic and current trends in the visu

Hog meat and hoecake; food supply in the Old South, 1840-1860 by Sam Bowers Hilliard( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When historical geographer Sam B. Hilliard's book Hog Meat and Hoecake was published in 1972, it was ahead of its time. It was one of the first scholarly examinations of the important role food played in a region's history, culture, and politics, and it has since become a landmark of foodways scholarship. In the book Hilliard examines the food supply, dietary habits, and agricultural choices of the antebellum American South, including Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. He explores the major southern food sources at the time, the r

The Mississippi Delta and the World : the Memoirs of David L. Cohn by James C Cobb( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one knew the Mississippi Delta more intimately or told its story more eloquently than did David L. Cohn (1894-1960). Between 1935 and 1960 he produced ten books including his best known, God Shakes Creation, later expanded into Where I Was Born and Raised-and scores of articles and essays, including more than sixty such pieces in the Atlantic Monthly alone. One of his greatest frustrations, however, was not finding time to organize and prepare for publication the memoir he began in 1953. James C. Cobb discovered Cohn's memoir in 1985 in the David L. Cohn Collection at the University of Missi
