Críticas:

"The big news on the southern economy is, after decades of false starts, depressed hopes, and unchanging stagnation, the region is nearly at parity with the rest of the nation. . . . This book offers some valuable studies of various aspects of the change. It is one of the few studies of southern economic history to recognize that the decades since World War II cannot be lumped in with all the others since the Civil War."--"Journal of American History" "These essays originated at a 1998 Georgia Institute of Technology conference on southern industrialization, and Philip Scranton, the book's editor, has masterfully organized them into a cohesive presentation. . . . A thought provoking set of diverse yet complementary studies."--"Journal of Southern History" "This is a useful and at times innovative collection that has much to offer to students of economic and business history and to debate about Southern industrialization or regional change in the twentieth century."--"Business History" "The nine high-quality essays in this volume . . . document some of the economic, political, and cultural changes that have occurred during the second wave of southern industrialization. Authors of the papers are geographers, historians, and sociologists. Each contribution is a case study of a specific industry during or after WW II."--"Choice" "One of the book's greatest strengths is that each chapter covers a very specific and narrow topic, but taken together the work as a whole provides great depth to Southern industrial history."--Lisa Ennis, "Tennessee Librarian" "Provides new insights and highlights the complexity and contingency of southern industrialization from the 1940s to the 1970s."--"Journal of Regional Science" ""The Second Wave" represents an important contribution to southern economic and business history."--"Technology and Culture" ""The Second Wave" is an admirable first step in addressing the gap in historical literature on specific southern industrial developments since 1940. . . . Each of the essayists mined a large amount of documentary evidence, and their mastery of the sources shines through in strong arguments and detailed analyses."--"South Carolina Historical Magazine" "The Second Wave" represents an important contribution to southern economic and business history.--"Technology and Culture" One of the book's greatest strengths is that each chapter covers a very specific and narrow topic, but taken together the work as a whole provides great depth to Southern industrial history.--Lisa Ennis ""Tennessee Librarian" " "The Second Wave" is an admirable first step in addressing the gap in historical literature on specific southern industrial developments since 1940. . . .
