The strange career of Jim Crow by C. Vann Woodward( Book )

112 editions published between 1955 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 5,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, referred to by Martin Luther King as "the historical bible of the Civil Rights movement," makes a compelling case that the Jim Crow system of racial legislation that dominated the South was not a natural outgrowth of slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, or even Redemption, but rather a haphazard creation of Southern whites in the last decade of the nineteenth century

Reunion and reaction : the compromise of 1877 and the end of reconstruction by C. Vann Woodward( Book )

63 editions published between 1911 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the era of America's landmark antebellum compromises and that of the Compromise of 1877, a war had intervened, destroying the integrity of the Southern system but failing to determine the New South's relation to the Union. While it did not restore the old order in the South, orrestore the South to parity with the Union, it did lay down the political foundations for reunion, bring Reconstruction to an end, and shape the future of four million freedmen. Originally published in 1951, this classic work by one of America's foremost experts on Southern history presents an important new

The private Mary Chesnut : the unpublished Civil War diaries by Mary Boykin Chesnut( Book )

9 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian C. Vann Woodward and Chesnut's biographer Elisabeth Muhlenfeld present here the previously unpublished Civil War diaries of Mary Boykin Chesnut. The ideal diarist, Mary Chesnut was at the right place at the right time with the right connections. Daughter of one senator from South Carolina and wife of another, she had kin and friends all over the Confederacy and knew intimately its political and military leaders. At Montgomery when the new nation was founded, at Charleston when the war started, and at Richmond during many crises, she traveled extensively during the war. She watched a world "literally kicked to pieces" and left the most vivid account we have of the death throes of a society. The diaries, filled with personal revelations and indiscretions, are indispensable to an appreciation of our most famous Southern literary insight into the Civil War experience

Cannibals all! or, Slaves without masters by George Fitzhugh( )

24 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in English and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern intellectual George Fitzhugh provides a passionate defense of slavery in this nearly 400-page volume published in 1857. Further developing ideas in his previous work Sociology for the South, Fitzhugh not only defends slavery but attacks the entire liberal tradition. Attacking Adam Smith, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson and others, Fitzhugh argues that free markets are harmful to society by forcing the lower classes into crushing labor and poverty. The answer, Fitzhugh argues, is slavery--not only for blacks, but for whites as well. "Slavery," he writes, "is a form, and the very best form, of socialism."

One of the strongest arguments for civil rights ever written was first published in Richmond, Virginia, and 1889, and its Author was a Southern businessman a prominent family who had served in the confederate army.
