Richard's review from Dear Reader: 

The list of books we sometimes recommend to those seeking to purchase from us one book, and only one book, that explains the South, includes The Sound and the Fury, All God’s Dangers: The Life of Nate Shaw, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, The Mind of the South, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, and Black Boy.  Now we have another to choose from, The South and America Since World War II, by James C. Cobb, Spalding Distinguished Professor at the University of Georgia and former Ole Miss and Southern Studies history professor.  With his acclaimed Away Down South: A History of Southern Identity, The Most Southern Place on Earth: The Mississippi Delta, and The Selling of the South, on industrial development in the South, Cobb has examined aspects of Southern History that have led him to this subject of the modern South for which he is so well-suited. Covering the broad themes of politics, the economy, agriculture, urbanism, feminism, and civil rights, Cobb uses particular events and stories, written in a straightforward and entertaining style, to give us—Southerners and Americans—a history that is captivating and illuminating.  RH
