Item Description: The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 155 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Appalachia has played a complex and often contradictory role in the unfolding of American history. Created by urban journalists in the years following the Civil War, the idea of Appalachia provided a counterpoint to emerging definitions of progress. Early-twentieth-century critics of modernity saw the region as a remnant of frontier life, a reflection of simpler times that should be preserved and protected. However, supporters of development and of the growth of material production, consumption, and technology decried what they perceived as the isolation and backwardness of the place and sought to uplift the mountain people through education and industrialization.Ronald D Eller has worked with local leaders, state policymakers, and national planners to translate the lessons of private industrial-development history into public policy affecting the region. In Uneven Ground: Appalachia since 1945, Eller examines the politics of development in Appalachia since World War II with an eye toward exploring the idea of progress as it has evolved in modern America. Appalachia s struggle to overcome poverty, to live in harmony with the land, and to respect the diversity of cultures and the value of community is also an American story. In the end, Eller concludes, Appalachia was not different from the rest of America; it was in fact a mirror of what the nation was becoming. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780813142463

Tams writes clearly about the coal industry, describing the quotidian work of mining, laying track, undercutting, blasting, and loading coal and revealing the work conditions and the lives of coal miners. Tams, West Virginia, a small coal mining village, grew out of W. P. Tams's labor of love. Bookseller Inventory # B9780937058558

However, supporters of development and of the growth of material production, consumption, and technology decried what they perceived as the isolation and backwardness of the place and sought to uplift the mountain people through education and industrialization.Ronald D Eller has worked with local leaders, state policymakers, and national planners to translate the lessons of private industrial-development history into public policy affecting the region. In Uneven Ground , Eller examines the politics of development in Appalachia after World War II with an eye toward exploring the idea of progress as it has evolved in modern America. Appalachia s struggle to overcome poverty, to live in harmony with the land, and to respect the diversity of cultures and the value of community is also an American story. In the end, Eller concludes, Appalachia was not different from the rest of America; it was in fact a mirror of what the nation was becoming . Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780813125237
