The Bayou State often conjures images of carnivals and conflicts where a general attitude of laissez les bon temps rouler ("let the good times roll") frequently masks curious, hostile and often competing cultural concerns and values. The image may be simplistic but not necessarily incorrect, and students of Louisiana history are often challenged to understand the dramatic cause and effect relationship that has produced some of our nation's most fascinating festivities as well as many of our most onerous scandals. This volume offers a comprehensive array of interpretive articles and primary documents designed both to enhance scholarly understanding and to entertain the general reader.
