AWAY DOWN SOUTH: A HISTORY OF SOUTHERN IDENTITY (Book) [show prizes]
Title: AWAY DOWN SOUTH: A HISTORY OF SOUTHERN IDENTITY
Author: JAMES C. COBB
Abstract: A unique synthesis of history, literature, economics, and popular culture, this is the first chronologically comprehensive treatment of the process whereby the South acquired its identity or identities as a distinct region or subculture within American life. If offers the most in-depth treatment thus far of the relationship between African Americans and the South, particularly the relationship between black identity and southern identity. It is also unique in treating the Southern Literary Renaissance and the Harlem Renaissance as components of the same phenomenon. It uses the story of southern identity to raise questions about the concept of identity itself, especially in the highly politicized form that is observed in the contemporary globalized world. It also presents a singularly detached analysis of the importance of historical memory to the construction of identity.
