Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SOUTHERN CULTURE, Charles Reagan Wilson William Ferris, Coeditors. Defining the South as existing as a "state of mind both within and beyond its geographical boundaries," and culture as a series of "historically transmitted pattern of meanings embodied in symbols, a system of inherited conceptions expressed in symbolic forms," this monumental reference work analyzes in both broad strokes and minute detail all things southern. In some 24 sections every aspect of southern culture is explored, dissected, and described, from agriculture to women's life. Each section includes an overview essay, alphabetically arranged thematic articles, and brief topical/biographical sketches. All articles are signed, and the cast of contributors numbers in the hundreds. While the sections on literature and music are among the longest, there are excellent sections on black life, folk life, social class, violence, etc. Two of the most fascinating, "history and manners" and the "mythic south" discuss all things quintessentially southern--barbeque, chitterlings, fried chicken, mint juleps, and moon pies--or viewed as southern--good old boys and girls, moonlight-and-magnolias, and rednecks. Biographical sketches number 250 living and deceased and include a cross section of representative figures from Daniel Boone to Elvis Presley. This is a stunning achievement in the field of regional reference works. PLUS----there are L-O-A-D-S of photos!!
