More than 4 weeks availability
Dedicated to the struggling Third World people in America, "In Search of the New South" explores the extent to which blacks have shared in the growth and prosperity attributed to the area known as the "New South". A timely analysis of the changes that have occurred in the Old South, a broad belt that stretched from Virginia to Texas, this volume focuses on case studies of six large southern cities - Houston, New Orleans, Atlanta, Memphis, Birmingham, and Tampa. Focusing specifically on the 1970s through the mid-1980s, Bullard and his colleagues have delineated the changes that have affected the black population in the South, as a distinct part of the larger transformation of America, and they challenge the reality of the "New South".
The editor and contributors are black social scientists who live and work in the South and bring to their research special insights on the southern black experience.
