Editorial Reviews


"[This volume] is about how sports have reflected and influenced the evolution of social justice in the last 150 years of southern history... Well researched." -- Choice "Illuminates the South's role in shaping the South... Miller's collection of essays ... consider the past role of sport in Southern distinctiveness and push historians to consider more heavily the role that sport continues to play." -- J.R. Duke, The Southern Register "Miller and his colleagues have made a valuable contribution to the study of southern sports. Students of southern history will find much of interest in this useful collection." --The North Carolina Historical Review ADVANCE PRAISE "This fascinating book will become a landmark in the historiography of sport. Because sports are so important in the region's culture and because the essayists take a broad view of their subjects, this collection will also appeal to everyone interested in the South's obsession with honor, its conceptions of manhood and womanhood, its transition into modernity, and especially its race relations." -- Gaines Foster, author of Ghosts of the Confederacy: Defeat, the Lost Cause, and the Emergence of the New South, 1865-1913 "This volume is a challenging interpretation that significantly advances the study of sports in America and provides the best single volume on sports in the South." -- Charles Reagan Wilson, director of the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi
