Sinopsis:

Book by Thompson Tracy

Críticas:

"Thompson yearns to define 'Southern identity' in the twenty-first century. . . .[I]t's high time that we're given an unflinching and accurate characterization of this place that has grown so different in even the last thirty years, despite sometimes clamoring to remain the same."--The Oxford American

"The more that's written about the American South--as a region and as a mindset--the more confused people seem to be. Tracy Thompson helps clear up the myths and the outdated stereotypes. She correctly portrays the South and its people not as stubborn but as always changing. This is a knowing and sensitive book."--Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and Benjamin Franklin

"Tracy Thompson's valuable 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

"Thompson's upbringing in Georgia allows for an intimacy of sight (not to mention a pleasing front-porch cadence) that tempers her chastisements with a weary strain of compassion. She loves the South, and though she recognizes its many flaws, ultimately wants to see it heal."--CivilWarTalk.com

"Reading is usually a comfortably reflective pursuit, but occasionally some books invite a more energetic response as they offer arguments that challenge or stimulate. Such a book is Tracy Thompson's The New Mind of the South.... Thompson asks provocative questions about the past and the present."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
