Dollard was a sociological researcher who spent months in a small southern town (left unnamed), then wrote about his impressions of the social structure of the community based on many interviews and his observations. The hidebound nature of black-white relations in the deep south, and the rationalizations of the people he interviewed, are well-described. Although the surface of race relations has certainly changed, many of the sentiments expressed by the citizens likely remain the same. His description of the style of communication between blacks and whites, when compared to that between persons of similar race, is fascinating.
