"Although it describes itself as a study of 'social and cultural change,' the materials on which this study is based are not those with which anthropologists are familiar or are likely to approve. As a matter of fact, the study starts with a different tradition--the tradition, namely, of the rural sociologist, who conceives his community rather as a statistical aggregate than as a cultural complex. . .The area chosen for this survey was a slice of one of the familiar 'black belts,' historically the region of cotton culture in the South. Macon County, of which Tuskegee is the county seat, is the seat also of Booker Washington's famous industrial school. . .It was assumed, no doubt, that Macon County offered a fair sample of Negro rural population. . ."--from the Introduction.

Review:

"A masterpeice of fact-finding...the effect is more like that of an art than of a science."

John Crowe Ransom, American Review

"Dr. Johnson has sought his folk like a scientist, but he has written them with an artists spirit."

Jonathan Daniels, Saturday Review



"Professor Johnson's excellent reporting is often as full of human interest as any of the fine fiction lately written on this subject."
