A new kind of primary source reader for the U.S. survey, The South in the History of the Nation enlivens American history for students in the South by placing it in familiar contexts. Fifteen chapters in each volume explore episodes and issues of national import with a broad swath of regional examples. More than 100 readings drawn from southern sources — among them letters, speeches, diary entries, government records, newspaper articles, and interviews — balance a variety of political and social topics. Because the organization and pace of the chapters parallel most major survey tests, instructors can easily incorporate the documents into the survey course without making extensive alternations to the syllabus. Generous editorial apparatus — including chapter introductions that identify the relationship between the southern documents and the national history, headnotes, prereading questions, gloss notes, and bibliographies — guides students through the documents and constantly emphasizes their role in the American history survey course.
