Discovering the South: One Man's Travels Through a Changing America in the 1930s

Price: $34.95

Jonathan Daniels, a white Southern liberal and editor of Raleigh News and Observer, toured the South during the 1930s to better observe the social and economic constructs of the South. His notes provide the full range of political and cultural possibilities in the South of the 1930s, from New Deal liberalism and social planning in the Tennessee Valley Authority, to Communist agitation in the Scottsboro case, to planters' and industrialists' reactionary worldview and repressive violence. The result is a lively narrative of black and white southerners fighting for and against democratic social change at the start of the nation's long civil rights era.
