Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungIn this sweeping narrative of the South from the Civil War to the present noted historian David Goldfield contemplates the roots of southern memory and explains how this memory has shaped the modern South both for good and ill. He candidly discusses how and why white southern men fashioned the myths of the Lost Cause and the Redemption out of the Civil War and how blacks and white women eventually crafted a more inclusive version of southern history that competed with traditional perspectives. As Goldfield shows the battle for southern history and for the South, continues--in museums, public spaces, books, state legislatures, and the minds of southerners. Integrating history and memory, religion, race, and gender, Still Fighting, the Civil War will help newcomers longtime residents, and curious outsiders alike attain a better understanding of the South and each other.
