From its investigation of the Southern class system to its pioneering assessments of the region's legacies of racism, religiosity, and romanticism, this book defined the way in which millions of readers would see the South for decades to come.

Chris Blaker, March 7, 2015 (view all comments by Chris Blaker)
An excellent study of the Southern mindset. What Tocqueville was to America and American government Cash is to the South. Cash wrote this book in 1940 and much has changed since WWII, air-conditioning, and sun belt migration. Even so this book is key to understanding Southern history and the current Southern mindset to some degree. The book lays waste to the Gone With the Wind myth of a widespread, cultured aristocracy. Although it's true elite families existed in the coastal pockets in Virginia, Charleston, New Orleans, and Savannah it would be false to think these plantation aristocrats existed everywhere. Of course there were wealthy landowners, but they weren't too far removed from their backwoods cousins. I can't recommend this book enough for those interested in the South. It's unfortunate the author only had the opportunity to write one book.
