The New South, 1945-1980Book - 1995
Almost three decades after publication of the tenth volume of A History of the South - George Brown Tindall's The Emergence of the New South, 1913-1945 - Numan V. Bartley now presents Volume XI: a masterly synthesis of the region's most complex years to date. From the close of World War II to the end of the seventies, the South underwent changes of such a radical nature and such tumultuous process - from rural orientation to urban, from segregated society to racially commingled, from poverty-saturated economy to positively booming Sunbelt - that the contrast between 1945 and 1980 almost defies cogent explanation. Bartley, however, meets that challenge, illuminating the intervening years both individually and collectively within one monumental work.
