Books by Series - Making the Modern South

Series Editor(s): David Goldfield

LSU Press has long been a leader in publishing outstanding studies of southern society. The Making the Modern South series illuminates the transformation of the American South from a primarily agricultural to a predominately metropolitan region. Focusing on the period since the Great Depression, new and established scholars analyze both change and continuity over time and draw connections between the region’s past and present. Potential authors are encouraged to take an interdisciplinary approach to research and interpretation.

Topics may include but are not limited to the following:
• race relations, especially the civil rights movement 
• work, including organized labor
• the roles and relationships of men, women, and children 
• economic, technological, and industrial development
• politics within its regional, national, and international contexts
• culture, including art, literature, poetry, food, and music 
• religion and its influence on public life
• environmental issues
• rural and urban life
• immigration and cultural diversity

Throughout his academic career, David Goldfield has contributed significantly to our understanding of the modern South with a dozen monographs and edited works as well as numerous articles. Goldfield also serves as editor of the Journal of Urban History and as an OAH Distinguished Lecturer. His most recent book is Still Fighting the Civil War: The American South and Southern History.
