Transcending familiar categories of "black" and "white," this volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture complicates and enriches our understanding of "southernness" by identifying the array of cultures that combined to shape the South. This exploration of southern ethnicities examines the ways people perform and maintain cultural identities through folklore, religious faith, dress, music, speech, cooking, and transgenerational tradition. Accessibly written and informed by the most recent research that recovers the ethnic diversity of the early South and documents the more recent arrival of new cultural groups, this volume greatly expands upon the modest Ethnic Life section of the original Encyclopedia. Contributors describe 88 ethnic groups that have lived in the South from the Mississippian Period (1000-1600) to the present. They include 34 American Indian groups, as well as the many communities with European, African, and Asian cultural ties that came to the region after 1600. Southerners from all backgrounds are likely to find themselves represented here.

This collection of essays offers the reader a critical analysis of the wide range of Italianese literature written over the last thirty years in North America. While writing by Italians in North America dates back over to the settlement of the New World, the last three decades in both Canada and America can justifiably be termed a renaissance in Italian writing. Both post-war immigrants and second and third generation North America Italians have produced a plethora of works in all literary genres and academic fields. Kenneth Scambray discusses the five major categories representative critical, scholarly, and imaginative works written since the 1970s. In the first three sections on history, folklore, and sociology, he locates the Italian experience socially and culturally in North America. In the following sections Scambray explores the works of selected North American Italian novelists, poets, and playwrights who have written about their Italian ethnic experiences.

A Class of Its Own positions important and rediscovered American social protest authors within both a scholarly and student-centered context. The volume draws on the expertise and pedagogy of established and younger scholars who move gracefully from theories of what makes a text “working class” to how studies of class empower college teachers and courses. Among the authors discussed in the volume’s essays and prominent in the book’s syllabi section are Zora Neale Hurston, Stephen Crane, Agnes Smedley, and Ana Castillo.
