Editorial Reviews


Minchin presents a careful, well-researched, clear, and subtle study of the breaching of the all-white world of southern textiles.Thomas Terrill, University of South Carolina --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

"This is a tremendously important book. It is the first full-length historical treatment of the racial integration of one of the American South's major industries, textiles. . . . An impressive piece of craftsmanship that complements Minchin's earlier study of the failure of trade unionism in southern textiles and establishes him as one of the leading scholars in this fertile field."--Ethnic & Racial Studies
