Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hill presents an up-to-date South now with more religious, racial, and ethnic diversity visible both on the ground and in the works of scholars reexamining the region's history. . . . With so much new information . . . all readers will appreciate the appearance of this new project so soon after its initial publication and hope the press will continue to support future editions." -- "Register of the Kentucky Historical Society"

Review

[The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture. Volume 1: Region] is a must for anyone interested in southern culture, and high school and university libraries should add it to their reference collections.--American Reference Books Annual

|Captures a major tension in the field of southern studies: one between homogenous culture and cultural diversity. . . [and] captures the state of things in southern religion, where it has been and where it is going. . . . Invaluable both as a pedagogical tool and a scholarly resource.--Religious Studies Review

|The New Encyclopedia is comprehensive, relevant, and representative of past and present trends in the field of Southern religion.--H-AmStdy

|Apart from New England, 'the South' is the only American region with wide and immediate recognition. Yet reliable historical information about it, especially its religious history, can be difficult to obtain. For well-researched articles by well-respected scholars on important aspects of 'the religious South,' this is now the place to begin. The editing, the expertise, and the expositions are all first rate.--Mark A. Noll, author of The Civil War as a Theological Crisis

|This volume offers a wealth of current information on a broad range of topics concerning the ever-changing religious currents in the South.--Journal of Folklore Research

|This set represents a solid improvement on a celebrated work. The individual volumes will be essential for scholars of various Southern studies topics.--Library Journal

|Hill presents an up-to-date South now with more religious, racial, and ethnic diversity visible both on the ground and in the works of scholars reexamining the region's history. . . . With so much new information . . . all readers will appreciate the appearance of this new project so soon after its initial publication and hope the press will continue to support future editions.--Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

|Both in specific entries and as a whole, this encyclopedic guide to religion in the American South will be exceptionally useful to specialists, students, and lay people alike. The volume serves as a superb introduction for novices and a fine reference work for seasoned scholars. This new format for the Encyclopedia is welcome indeed!--Donald G. Mathews, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Emeritus

|But wherever one's researches may lead, this volume will provide a welcome starting point. Its expertly crafted entries guide readers through the thicket of southern religious life while accomplishing that most difficult of tasks: answering questions for the novice while providing penetrating commentary for the expert.--North Carolina Historical Review

|Taken together, these three titles constitute the best set of reference works on the history, geography, and biography of the state. . . . [The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture] is an important work and should be found in any library that has an interest in North Carolina.--American Reference Books Annual
