Summary
"In this innovative collection, Jason Phillips and ten other historians and literary scholars explore the enduring dynamic between history, literature, and power in the American South. Blending analysis with storytelling, and professional insights with personal experiences, they "deconstruct Dixie," insisting that writing the South's history means harnessing, not criticizing, the inherent power of narrative. Contributors examine white southern documents from multiple, fresh perspectives and consider ways in which storytelling helped shape identity and mold scholarship over time." -- Publisher's description
