John B. Boles


Rich in tradition, the southern portion of the United States has provided the backdrop for some of the most significant historical events in American history. The South Through Timeoffers an inclusive, interpretative account, providing a comprehensive examination that places in context major events including the rise of slavery and the Civil War without neglecting the overall contours of southern history. John B. Bolessynthesizes recent scholarship to present the latest accepted interpretation on topics such as the original Native American inhabitants; initial European exploration and settlement; the origins of the different colonies; the evolution of slavery and the plantation system; the South's role in the creation of the new nation; the rise of southern distinctness; the role of women; the nature f the antebellum society, economy, and culture; the role of religion; southern politics; the growth of sectionalism and the causes of secession; and the tragedy of the Civil War. The third edition incorporates the most recent scholarship, contains more illustrative examples, and updates the bibliographical suggestions. As with earlier editions, much attention is given to Native Americans, women, African Americans, and the plain folk, and the overall interpretation emphasizes social and cultural history as well as economic and political. Written in clear, elegant prose, the book makes accessible to students a sophisticated analysis of the South's history.John B. Boles is the author of 'The South Through Time: A History of an American Region, Vol. 1', published 2003 under ISBN 9780131835481 and ISBN 0131835483.
