New Study of White Southerners: 1945-1975

Here is a good rule to follow: Don’t start a new book the day before classes begin.  There has been some buzz about the recently-released study by Jason Sokol titled, There Goes My Everything: White Southerners In The Age of Civil Rights, 1945-1975.  Sokol teaches at Cornell University and wrote his dissertation under Leon Litwack at UC Berkeley.  I am making my way through the introduction and I can’t put it down.  Check out the review in the Washington Post by Jonathan Yardley.
