Rezensionen
'A welcome contribution to the growing body of revisionist scholarship influenced by postmodernism. The multidisciplinary essays do not belong to the traditional schools of either consensus or conflict history, but rather adopt the perspective of diversity without boundaries. Focusing on diversity within the region, they challenge the conventional notion of a South unified by reactionary ideology_As these essays clearly show, American history was changed by homegrown southern radicals who dared to dream and become the missionaries for a new social order.'- Ronald L. Lewis, Stuart and Joyce Robbins Chair in History, West Virginia University, USA

'A stunning, dazzling and, ultimately, insightful collection of essays which reaffirms the simple fact that those who wish to understand the U.S. must understand the U.S. South_and those who wish to understand the U.S. South must read this book.' -Gerald Horne, author of Black and Brown: African-Americans and the Mexican Revolution, 1910-1920

'This book uncovers some lost history of radical political activity in the South, dispelling the image of the South as conservative, provincial and unconcerned with the problems of poverty, inequality, unemployment which plagued the region. Thanks to Smethurst, Green, and Rubin for disturbing our ideas of the South and adding to our knowledge of Southern politics and history.'- Helen Matthews Lewis, author of Mountain Sisters: From Convent to Community in Appalachia
