This probing collection of essays assesses the wide influence of W.J. Cash and the profound effect of his classic dissection of southern history. Perhaps more than any other historian, W.J. Cash revolutionized the interpretation of southern identity. In 1941, when he published The Mind of the South, he exploded the correlated myths of the Cavalier South and the New South and gave historiography a new gauge for examining Dixie. In the half century since its publication, Cash's book has lain in the path of every historian of the South. Not all, however, have expressed the same opinion about him and his influence, though few can deny how in the past fifty years his indelible and authoritative work has shaped the writing of southern history. In The Mind of the South: Fifty Years Later, a collection of papers presented at the annual Porter L. Fortune Symposium on Southern History held at the University of Mississippi, eleven scholars examine this classic study and assess its enduring importance. Here in these essays Cash is praised, evaluated, criticized, defended, and classified, while being acknowledged as the lion in the crossroads of southern historiography.

Bringing together Michael O’Brien’s pathbreaking essays on the American South, this book examines the persistence and vitality of southern intellectual history from the early nineteenth century to the present day. At once a broad survey of southern thought and a meditation on the subject as an academic discipline, Rethinking the South deftly integrates social history, literary criticism, and historiography as it positions the South within the wider traditions of European and American culture. In his thoughtful introduction and throughout the ten essays that follow, O'Brien stresses the tradition of Romanticism as a central theme, binding togethere figures as disparate as critic Hugh Legare, literary scholar Edwin Mims, poets Richard Henry Wilde and Allen Tate, and historians W. J. Cash and C. Vann Woodward. First published as a collection in 1988, these essays confirm O’Brien’s position as a pioneer in establishing and defining the enterprise of southern intellectual history.
