9780813108681: Appalachia's Path to Dependency: Rethinking a Region's Economic History, 1730-1940

In Appalachia's Path to Dependency, Paul Salstrom examines the evolution of economic life over time in southern Appalachia. Moving away from the colonial model to an analysis based on dependency, he exposes the complex web of factors―regulation of credit, industrialization, population growth, cultural values, federal intervention―that has worked against the region.

Salstrom argues that economic adversity has resulted from three types of disadvantages: natural, market, and political. The overall context in which Appalachia's economic life unfolded was one of expanding United States markets and, after the Civil War, of expanding capitalist relations.

Covering Appalachia's economic history from early white settlement to the end of the New Deal, this work is not simply an economic interpretation but draws as well on other areas of history. Whereas other interpretations of Appalachia's economy have tended to seek social or psychological explanations for its dependency, this important work compels us to look directly at the region's economic history. This regional perspective offers a clear-eyed view of Appalachia's path in the future.

From the Back Cover:

This book first surveys to origins of Appalachia's economic dependency within American market relations. Then it examines the exacerbation of that dependency through federal political acts. Next it discusses why the region's dependency was further increased by industrialization and, finally, why its dependency was not reduced by the New Deal of the 1930s.

About the Author:

Paul Salstrom is associate professor of history at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College and author of From Pioneering to Persevering: Family Farming in Indiana to 1880.

Book Description The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The debate over the source of Appalachia s economic problems has been going strong since Harry Caudill s Night Comes to the Cumberlands appeared in 1963. Now a new study illuminates the region s plight, making a vital contribution to the understanding of this area s critical economic dilemma. In Appalachia s Path to Dependency, Paul Salstrom examines the evolution of economic life over time in southern Appalachia. Moving away from the colonial model to an analysis based on dependency, he exposes the complex web of factors - regulation of credit, industrialization, population growth, cultural values, federal intervention - that has worked against the region. Salstrom argues that economic adversity has resulted from three types of disadvantages: natural, market, and political. The overall context in which Appalachia s economic life unfolded was one of expanding United States markets and, after the Civil War, of expanding capitalist relations. Covering the entire span of Appalachia s economic history, from the early white settlement to the end of the New Deal, this work is not simply an economic interpretation but draws as well on other areas of history. Salstrom compares Appalachia with the Midwest at mid-nineteenth century, today s Appalachia with Third World countries, and the region with Japan. Whereas other interpretations of Appalachia s economy have tended to seek social or psychological explanations for its dependency, this important work compels us to look directly at the region s economic history. This regional perspective offers a clear-eyed view of Appalachia s path in the future. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780813108681
