Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385474423, Paperback)

The South is different from the rest of the United States, and it's not just because most folks who live there speak with a southern drawl. In 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the South authors John Shelton Reed and Dale Volberg Reed, both Southern academics, examine the ideologies and traditions the have historically set the South apart from the rest of America. Topical sections include "The Central Theme: Race and Politics" and "Grit Lit: Literature" and cover such diverse subjects as Bourbon Street, clogging and Paul "Bear" Bryant.
