Summary
In this book, Kirby shows how the American public's perceptions of the South have been influenced, even controlled, by the mass communications media. Kirby looks at major movies, radio and television shows, plays, popular histories, and music from the turn of the century through the 1980s. He documents a progression in the national image of the South from the cracker wasteland of Erskine Caldwell's God's little acre to the antebellum wonderland of Hollywood's Shirley Temple-'Bojangles' Robinson musicals; from William Stryon's searching account of the Old South in Confessions of Nat Turner to the New South ingenuity of Jimmy Carter and Ted Turner; and from the regressive backroads of television's The Dukes of Hazzard to the complex reconciliation found in Alice Walker's and Steven Speilberg's The color purple
