Sinopsis:

Book by Thompson Tracy

Críticas:

"Thompson, a writer who lopes easily from the dispensing of statistics to shoe-leather reporting to touching autobiography to impressive flights of moral reflection, makes an ideal guide to this landscape....For this outsider it offered illumination on every page."

"[Thompson] displays a splendid cynicism toward establishment politicians of all kinds, and her passion for the truth about forgotten wrongs will inspire all but the most hidebound Southerner."

"[An] able blend of reportage, travelogue, and memoir...."The New Mind of the South" is a lucid and inspired endeavor that gracefully handles the Southern paradoxes and polishes away rusted typecasts."

"[B]rilliant. . . . On this diagnostic tour of the South's kudzu-lined highways, Thompson's cartographic eye is keen. . . . Southern roads, Thompson shows us, are haunted by the heat shimmers of the past and potholed by uncertainties in the present-and we must grapple with both if we're ever going to get anywhere. . . . If we heed Thompson's plea, if we can try together to finally detoxify those battlefields of the heart and mind, then maybe the South can actually be 'new'-not merely rise again, but truly bloom."

"A narrative that pulls on new data, interviews, historic archives and plain old observation.....I'm thinking "The New Mind of the South" has come along at just the right time."

""The New Mind of the South" is a clear-eyed, deeply considered look at the evolution of a part of the country that, more than a century after the end of the Civil War, continues to remain something of a foreign entity to rest of the nation."

"A nuanced--and sometimes astringently humorous--portrait of a multifaceted, often misunderstood region that overturns stereotypes."

"[A] splendid new book...."The New Mind of the South" does its namesake proud. Thoroughly researched and beautifully written, it suggests that if Dixie can make peace with the hellish parts of its legacy while fostering its inherent strengths, it just might achieve a real breakthrough."

Tracy Thompson'svaluable book brings into modern times the search for Southern identity undertaken seventy years ago by W.J. Cash. With clear-eyed reporting, she shows us the multi-ethnic and more individualistic South that is emerging from the still-powerful matrix of black-white race relations, religion, and one-party politics. She argues that there is a newer New South of demographic diversity, and this book makes an impressive stride toward a fresh Southern sociology needed to carry students of the region beyond the familiar labels of Bible Belt and Sun Belt. --Howell Raines, author of My Soul Is Rested

Engaging, thoughtful. --Tampa Bay Times
