Rich man's war, poor man's fight race, class, and power in the rural South during the first world war by Jeanette Keith ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
[In this volume, the author] traces southern draft resistance to several sources, including whites' long-term political opposition to militarism, southern blacks' reluctance to serve a nation that refused to respect their rights, the peace witness of southern churches, and, above all, anger at class bias in federal conscription policies. [He] shows how draft dodgers' success in avoiding service resulted from the failure of southern states to create effective mechanisms for identifying and classifying individuals. Lacking local-level data on draft evaders, the federal government used agencies of surveillance both to find reluctant conscripts and to squelch antiwar dissent in rural areas. [He also] offers new insights into rural southern politics and society as well as the growing power of the nation-state in early twentieth-century America.-Back cover
