Entering the Fray: Gender, Politics, and Culture in the New South is an anthology of essays by learned authors discussing the intersection of gender, race, culture, and the transformation of politics in the New South (from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and onward). From a children's challenge to segregated recreational spaces in New Orleans, to black women's participation in the 1959 volunteer ticket campaign in Memphis Tennessee, to how white women's organizations in Georgia debated suffrage, each essay focuses upon a pivotal moment illuminating the drastic changes rippling through society. An index for easy reference enhances this informed and informative anthology, highly recommended especially for college library collections.
