Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0292718373, Hardcover)

A century and a half after the conclusion of the Civil War, the legacy of the Confederate States of America continues to influence national politics in profound ways. Drawing on magazines such as "Southern Partisan" and publications from the secessionist organization League of the South, as well as DixieNet and additional newsletters and websites, "Neo-Confederacy" probes the veneer of this movement to reveal goals far more extensive than a mere celebration of ancestry.Incorporating groundbreaking essays on the Neo-Confederacy movement, this eye-opening work encompasses such topics as literature and music; the ethnic and cultural claims of white, Anglo-Celtic southerners; gender and sexuality; the origins and development of the movement and its tenets; and ultimately its nationalization into a far-reaching factor in reactionary conservative politics. The first book-length study of this powerful sociological phenomenon, "Neo-Confederacy" raises crucial questions about the mainstreaming of an ideology that, founded on notions of white supremacy, has made curiously strong inroads throughout the realms of sexist, homophobic, anti-immigrant, and often 'orthodox' Christian populations that would otherwise have no affiliation with the regionality or heritage traditionally associated with Confederate history.
