Defending Dixie is a selection from Dr. Clyde Wilson's voluminous writings about the South---past, present, and future---over a period of more than thirty years. The admiring view of Dixie presented here is rare at the present day. Dr. Wilson writes from a belief that the South is a living and long-lasting reality that continues to offer a valuable alternative vision to Americans of the 21st century. More importantly, as he says of Dixie, "there are plenty of good people who love her still."

Wilson "is the last pterodactyl, soaring close to the sun, casting a long, cold shadow over the politically correct landscape. This volume ... provides Wilson's growing readership with more of his observations on an astonishing variety of subjects ... worried over by a mind as precise and expansive as an encyclopedia.... The importance of this book lies in its originality, which derives from the operation of Clyde Wilson's creative intellect on disparate and wide-ranging bodies of knowledge. These are the same old pre-occupations given new life and meaning by a real mind---as opposed to what passes for minds in the current intellectual establishment. The book is a joy to read for one more reason: its clear and imaginative prose. Most historians write like sociologists.... Wilson writes like a good novelist.... Defending Dixie is the kind of book whose prose you can read for sheer pleasure." --From the Introduction by Thomas H. LandessAbout the Author:
