Summary: "There is no denying that race is a critical issue in understanding the South. However, this concluding volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture challenges previous understandings, revealing the region's rich, ever-expanding diversity and providing new explorations of race relations. In 36 thematic and 29 topical essays, contributors examine such subjects as the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, Japanese American incarceration in the South, relations between African Americans and Native Americans, Chinese men adopting Mexican identities, Latino religious practices, and Vietnamese life in the region. Together the essays paint a nuanced portrait of how concepts of race in the South have influenced its history, art, politics, and culture beyond the familiar binary of black and white."--Publisher's website.
Notes: "Published with the assistance of the Anniversary Endowment Fund of the University of North Carolina Press"--Title page verso.
One of a series of volumes that build upon the original 24 subject categories used in the Encyclopedia of Southern culture, originally published in 1989.
"Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi."
