Shades of the Sunbelt: Essays on Ethnicity, Race, and the Urban South


This collection of original essays represents the first scholarly effort to examine the variety of ethnic and urban experiences that have characterized the post-World War II South. It goes beyond anything else in print in suggesting regional patterns and providing comparative models with other sections of the nation. A distinctive feature of this timely work is its treatment of various ethnic groups in southern cities, including Jews, Italians, Cubans, Haitians, and Canadians, and the integration of these groups into the emerging Sunbelt society of today. The essays provide a preliminary reconnaissance into some of the more important issues and pose questions, focus attention, and encourage fresh approaches to the study of a subject of immediate public significance, both to the region and, as the Sunbelt grows in numbers and influence, to the nation as well.
