Abstract:

A history of the political, economic, and social ideas of the South by a Southern writer.

In this lively portrait of the Southern mind, Mr. Savage probes the complex and curiously tangled roots buried deep in political, economic, and social history. It is a history frequently glorious and inspiring, romantic and glamorous- yet often blatantly cruel with overtones of appalling ignorance, blind bigotry, and idolatry to false gods. In the main, the history of the South is a tragic one. Until recently, its saga was a tale of lost opportunities and of withdrawal from the mainstream of Western civilization. This book ranges over the relationship of the South to its geography and resources, to slavery and King Cotton, to its insularity and pride, and to its traumatic role in the Civil War. Mr. Savage traces the poverty and bitterness which followed well into the present century and the issues of political and economic thinking which affected and included the present-day struggle over integration. -- from Book Jacket.
