Ranging from the Georgia coast to the Tennessee mountains, from the power brokers to tenant farmers, Ayers depicts a land of startling contrasts. Ayers takes us from remote Southern towns, revolutionized by the spread of the railroads, to the statehouses where Democratic Redeemers swept away the legacy of Reconstruction; from the small farmers, trapped into growing nothing but cotton, to the new industries of Birmingham; from abuse and intimacy in the family to
tumultuous public meetings of the prohibitionists. He explores every aspect of society, politics, and the economy, detailing the importance of each in the emerging New South. Central to the entire story is the role of race relations, from alliances and friendships between blacks and whites to the
spread of Jim Crows laws and disfranchisement. The teeming nineteenth-century South comes to life in these pages.

George M. Fredrickson, The New York Review of Books The most ambitious, comprehensive, and original survey of post-Reconstruction Southern history to appear since Woodward's Origins.... Ayers's book deepens and enriches our sense of the diversity and complexity of southern life.

Washington Post Book World Here, at last, is a subtle, compelling view of the late 19th-century South whose scholarship is up-to-date.... In a synthesis that captures the late 19th-century South in its bewildering complexity, Ayers does get the New South right.
