Rage for Order : Black-white Relations in the American South Since Emancipation (86 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Crucible of Race, a major reinterpretation of black-white relations in the South, was widely acclaimed on publication and compared favorably to two of the seminal books on Southern history: Wilbur J. Cash's The Mind of the South and C. Vann Woodward's The Strange Career of Jim Crow. Representing 20 years of research and writing on the history of the South, The Crucible of Race explores the large topic of Southern race relations for a span of a century and a half. Oxford is pleased to make available an abridgement of this parent volume: A Rage for Order preserves all the theme lines that were advanced in the original volume and many of the individual stories. As in Crucible of Race, Williamson here confronts the awful irony that the war to free blacks from slavery also freed racism. He examines the shift in the power base of Southern white leadership after 1850 and recounts the terrible violence done to blacks in the name of self-protection. This condensation of one of the most important interpretations of Southern history is offered as a means by which a large audience can grasp the essentials of black-white relations--a problem that persists to this day and one with which we all must contend--North and South, black and white.

Synopsis:

"If you hear a dinosaur/Knocking loudly on your door,/Through the keyhole firmly say/'Nobody is home today.'/If the bell should start to ring,/Tell the beast, 'No visiting.'/If you see there's more than one,/Turn around and start to run." Here's a collection of poems about every kind of

dinosaur you can think of--including the real reason why they all disappeared.
