Salstrom (history, West Virginia U.) argues that the economic problems of southern Appalachia stem not from any social or psychological deficiencies of the residents, as many have claimed, but from the course of the region's and the nations's economic history. Tracing the history from the first white settlements to the end of the New Deal, he reveals the complex web of factors that have worked against the area, such as the regulation of credit, industrialization, population growth, cultural values, and federal intervention. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

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.
