520    The concept of the New South" has elicited fierce debate 
       among historians since the mid-twentieth century. At the 
       heart of the argument is the question of whether the post-
       Civil War South transformed itself into something 
       genuinely new or simply held firm to patterns of life 
       established before 1861. The South did change in 
       significant ways after the Civil War ended, but many of 
       its enduring trademarks, the most prominent being white 
       supremacy, remained constant well into the twentieth 
       century. Scholars have yet to meet the vexing challenge of
       proving or disproving the existence of a New South. Even 
       in the twenty-first century, amid the South's sprawling 
       cities, expanding suburbia, and high-tech environment, 
       vestiges of the Old South remain. Bringing order out of 
       the voluminous canon of writing on the New South poses a 
       challenge. The essays here trace the lineaments of 
       historical debate on the most important questions related 
       to the South's history since 1865 and how that argument 
       has changed over time as modernity descended on Dixie. 
       Interpreting American History: The New South consists of 
       essays written by noted scholars that address topics 
       relating to the New South, such as the Populist era, the 
       Great Depression, and the Civil Rights Movement, and 
       emerging fields such as Reconstruction in a global context,
       New South environmental history, and southern women. Each 
       contributor explains clearly and succinctly the winding 
       path historical writing has taken on each of the topics. 
       Interpreting American History: The New South will appeal 
       to a wide range of U.S. history students. Established 
       scholars and nonacademics will also find it to be a 
       valuable source."
