Dreaming of Dixie: How the South Was Created in American Popular Culture

Paperback, 01/08/2013, £31.95
From the late nineteenth century through World War II, popular culture portrayed the American South as a region ensconced in its antebellum past, draped in moonlight and magnolias, and represented by such southern icons as the mammy, the belle, and the chivalrous planter. Karen Cox shows that the chief purveyors of this constructed nostalgia for the Old South were outsiders of the region.
