Editorial Reviews


Reading through this fine collection, I wondered why it has taken so long for such a work to appear. One of the strengths of this volume is it timeliness.

-- David Goldfield ― author of Southern Histories: Public, Personal, and Sacred

Overall, a sunny yet sophisticated view of regional change set against a world backdrop―a most engaging read.

-- Leon Fink ― editor of Labor: Studies in Working-Class History of the Americas

Once isolated, the South today is the nation's most 'globalized' region. Anyone interested in how this transformation happened and what it means should read these stimulating essays. Easily the best available material on the subject.

-- Gavin Wright ― Stanford University

This book will be immediately interesting to historians of the South, particularly those studying political economy. Each essay offers a focused, clearly argued historical interpretation of globalization in the South supported by large amounts of evidence, useful charts, and extensive footnotes. This concise and readable volume outlines the field well and provides thorough coverage of some of the most important aspects of the topic. It will also be very useful in university classes on southern history and globalization.

-- H-South

Interesting and thought provoking . . . A book that should find its way onto the reading lists of seminars both in southern and diplomatic history . . . A strength of this book . . . is that Cobb and Stueck have drawn a balanced mixture of established and rising scholars. . . . With such an extensive array of topics, this might seem like an unfocused study, but Cobb and Stueck effectively tie these essays together in their introduction and organize the chapters in a logical fashion that flows well. In fact, this section and the book itself are nearly perfect examples of how to put this type of project together. Other scholars undertaking similar anthologies could do worse when looking for a model.

-- South Carolina Historical Magazine

As a scholar of contemporary southern cities and racial politics, I know this volume will work its way into my teaching and research, both of which will be enriched by its findings.

-- Alabama Review

As the current global era in the South goes forward, the read of . . . [this book] will have a better understanding of the sources of change and stability including an appreciation of the vagaries that have always presented themselves and will likely to come.

-- Business Report and Journal
