Bartram's Living Legacy: The Travels and the Nature of the South
Mercer University Press 2010
NewSouth Books 2008
This chapter appears in "American Crisis, Southern Solutions: from Where We Stand, Promise and Peril." Editor Anthony Dunbar and more than a dozen Southern writers, historians, business and labor watchers, and philosophers reexamine some of the issues raised in the 2004 collection of essays Where We Stand: Voices of Southern Dissent, which warned of the dangers of reelecting George W. Bush and of white Southerners unquestioningly casting their political lot with fundamentalism and conservatism. In this new collection, those essayists and new ones offer thoughtful, provocative suggestions for a fresh path America should follow in governance, international affairs, the environment, workplace security, freedom of the press, and immigration reform.
