Poor whiteshave been isolated from mainstream white Southern culture and have been in turnstereotyped as rednecks and Holy Rollers, discriminated against, and misunderstood.In their isolation, they have developed a unique subculture and defended it with atenacity and pride that puzzles and confuses the larger society. Written 25 yearsago, this book was one scholar's attempt to understand these people and theirculture. For this new edition, Wayne Flynt has provided a new retrospectiveintroduction and an up-to-date bibliography.
