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

23 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 2,504 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
The Brown decision, Jim Crow, and Southern identity by James C Cobb( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,735 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
Industrialization and southern society, 1877-1984 by James C Cobb( Book )

20 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in English and held by 1,266 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

"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."--Jacket

Georgia odyssey by James C Cobb( )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 794 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 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 12 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

Building the back of beyond : government authority, community life and economic development in the Upper Little Tennessee Valley, 1880-1992 by Stephen Wallace Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation investigates the relationships among government authority, community life, and economic development in the Upper Little Tennessee Valley. This area saw extensive growth during the first quarter of the twentieth century because of the exploitation of its timber and mineral resources. These industries introduced transient families into the area, contributing to the fragility of the economic and social structure. These transient families, like the longtime residents, embraced the regular paychecks industrial employment offered, and willingly participated in the exploitation of the area's resources, sacrificing long term sustainable growth for the short-to-medium-term security of a cash income. Following that period of rapid growth, the founding of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the construction of TVA's Fontana Dam cut off access to much of the area's resource base and displaced many residents from their homes, disrupting the already tenuous threads holding the area's communities together. Both transient families and longtime residents again adapted to the changing economic conditions by seeking whatever short-term financial security they could obtain. After the completion of the dam in 1945, residents found their economic options even more severely curtailed. Tourism provided the sole opportunity for escaping the poverty which a half century of extractive growth could not eliminate. By the 1990s, several communities in the Upper Little Tennessee had begun to use tourism as a means of economic growth, but their growth paled by comparison to neighboring counties adjacent to the National Park
