9780820319421: Place Over Time: The Continuity of Southern Distinctiveness

Nearly twenty years after its original publication, Place Over Time remains an influential work in an ongoing debate at the heart of southern historiography―what is the South and how is it different from other parts of the country?

Carl N. Degler takes issue with historians C. Vann Woodward, Eugene Genovese, and others who view the Old South as a fading memory overtaken by a bold New South, with the Civil War and its aftermath as the sharp dividing point between the two eras. He also challenges the conventional wisdom that the South is fundamentally different from the rest of the country. Instead, Degler makes an eloquent and thought-provoking argument for a narrowly limited but persistent southern cultural identity that shares common values with the rest of the country while retaining its own distinctiveness and continuity with the past.
