The Indicted South: Public Criticism, Southern Inferiority, and the Politics of Whiteness, by Angie Maxwell.

This spring the University of North Carolina Press is publishing The Indicted South: Public Criticism, Southern Inferiority, and the Politics of Whiteness by Angie Maxwell, assistant professor in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences.

Maxwell received her bachelor's degree in international relations from the University of Arkansas in 2000 and is now the Diane D. Blair Assistant Professor of Southern Studies at the University of Arkansas.

The Indicted South is due to publish on April 15. For more information, visit the North Carolina Press listing.

By the 1920s, the sectional reconciliation that had seemed achievable after Reconstruction was foundering, and the South was increasingly perceived and portrayed as impoverished, uneducated and backward. In this interdisciplinary study, Maxwell examines and connects three key 20th-century moments in which the South was exposed to intense public criticism, identifying in white southerners' responses a pattern of defensiveness that shaped the region's political and cultural conservatism.
