Solid hardcover.; "massive and engaging study examines the rural southern world of the first half of this century, its collapse, and the resulting "modernization" of southern society. ... Kirby painstakingly charts the structural changes in agriculture that have occurred in the South and the effects these changes have had on people both at work and in the community. He is quick to note that there is not just one South but many, emphasizing the South's diversity not only in terms of race but also in terms of crop type and topography, and the resultant cultural differences of the various areas of the region. ... Rural Worlds Lost ... definitively charts the enormous changes that have taken place in the South in this century." ; xix, 390 pages.
