Southern Exposure

Taylor, William R.
October 1955
New Republic;10/31/55, Vol. 133 Issue 18, p26
This article discusses the book "A Southern Reader," edited by Willard Thorp. The book provides an almost photographic picture of life in the South for those who reject or greet with skepticism the more general formulations of professional historians. The selections which make up this work range over the whole period of American life from the period of colonial settlement to the recent decision of the Supreme Court on school segregation, but they focus mainly in the period before and after the Civil War. Despite the great disparity of materials and a considerable temporal range, this anthology possesses, for the most part, a very rare kind of formal unity.
