Summary
"Scarlett Doesn't Live Here Anymore is a history of the South in the years leading up to and following the Civil War - a history that focuses on the women who made up the fabric of southern life before and during the war and remade themselves and their world after it." "Establishing the household as the central institution of southern society, Edwards delineates the inseparable links between domestic relations and civil and political rights in ways that highlight women's active political role throughout the nineteenth century. She draws on diaries, letters, newspaper accounts, government records, legal documents, court proceedings, and other primary sources to explore the experiences and actions of individual women in the changing South, demonstrating how family, kin, personal reputation, and social context all merged with gender, race, and class to shape what particular women could do in particular circumstances." "An ideal basic text on society in the Civil War era, Scarlett Doesn't Live Here Anymore demonstrates how women on every step of the social ladder used the resources at their disposal to fashion their own positive identities, to create the social bonds that sustained them in difficult times, and to express powerful social critiques that helped them make sense of their lives. Throughout the period, Edwards shows, women worked actively to shape southern society in ways that fulfilled their hopes for the future."--BOOK JACKET
