Editorial Reviews

Review

A 2009 Choice Outstanding Academic Title

Organized chronologically, the book gives a powerful description of . . . repression, redemption, and survival in a southern state in the era of Jim Crow. Add on contributions from Dan Carter, Jack Bass, and Cleveland Sellers, and the reader has that rarest of works--an anthology that sticks to a theme with coherence. There is no better place to begin a study of South Carolina politics, or southern history, for that matter. An outstanding work.
Choice

This lively collection of scholarly and anecdotal presentations is an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in one of the greatest civil battles of our time. It will shatter all superficial assumptions that little was done during the early part of the last century. Most importantly, it establishes unequivocally the critical role South Carolina played in the tragedies, dramas, and hard-fought victories of this age.
Charleston (S.C.) Post & Courier

Amid the riveting first-person accounts and intriguing historical themes, something transformative occurs . . . in [this] immensely moving book.
Columbia (S.C.) State

This is an important book. Through a wonderful variety of forms--including memoirs, discussions, essays, and photographs--it chronicles a turbulent period in our state's history. The South Carolina of today is a product of that period. Toward the Meeting of the Waters informs us about how much our state and its people have changed since the 1950s, but, it also informs us that, in terms of race relations, we still have a way to go.
Walter Edgar, author of South Carolina: A History and editor of The South Carolina Encyclopedia

From the Inside Flap
