Product Description

Review

"These essays are both timed and timeless. Timed because they are products of a man and his era. They are his thoughts, shaped by what was happening to him when he wrote them. Timeless because they offer a historical perspective on the region and its people. This is a fine book."

--Harvey H. Jackson, The Journal of Southern History

"Any reader, whether interested in the usual subjects about the South or not, will learn new things about the South from reading Reed's engaging book."

--Larry D. Griffin, Arkansas Review: A Journal of Delta Studies

"Informatively written. . . Minding the South is a wonderful celebration of the American South and its culture--a regional society which has resisted being assimilated by mainstream United States in order to keep its own distinctive personality. . . . Minding the South is a splendid and enduring tribute to American Southern culture and custom."

HASH(0x95431de0) out of 5 stars A splendid and enduring tribute 14 Nov. 2003
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Informatively written by John Shelton Reed (educator, social scientist, and the author and/or editor of thirteen books about the American South), Minding The South is a wonderful celebration of the American South and its culture -- a regional society which has resisted being assimilated by the mainstream United States in order to keep its own distinctive personality. From the search for objectivity among common pitfalls in remembering Southern history especially before and during the civil war; to profiles of talented Southerners who have devoted themselves to everything from rock and roll to designing silver jewelry, Minding The South is a splendid and enduring tribute to American Southern culture and custom.
